EMERGENCY WATER LINE REPAIR

The Hennessey Water Department crew made quick work of an emergency waterline repair last Tuesday night, (September 19th) on W. 2nd St. They turned off the water town-wide at about 8 p.m. anticipating the repair to take about 2 hours but were able to restore the water to the town in about 45 minutes.  For a short time, they were concerned with an approaching severe thunderstorm, but the storm dissipated after a brief shower and did not interrupt their work.  West 2nd St. was narrowed to one lane for a few days after while they cleaned up the repair site.
