Reclaimed leak stopped Saturday
St. Petersburg, Fla. (October 13, 2018) – Residents of a small section of Shore Acres will be without reclaimed water through the beginning of next week after a crew managed to stop a leak in the reclaimed service line along Harrisburg Street, NE earlier this morning.
St.Petersburg Water Resources workers were dispatched to the 4000 block of Harrisburg St. NE, early Saturday where they discovered a small leak on the 4” reclaimed water main in the parkway.
Water was running down the street and into the storm drain catch basin at the intersection of Delaware Ave. NE and Harrisburg St. NE. This storm drain then flows north for about 250’ until it empties into Butterfly Lake.
It is estimated that 3,000 gallons of fully-treated reclaimed quality water was discharged into the lake.
A one-block section of Harrisburg Street SE will not have reclaimed service until the leak can be fully repaired Monday.
