Binghamton Water Line Breaks Keep Crews Busy

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

Broken water lines in the city of Binghamton and across Broome County have caused some service problems in recent days.

Most of the trouble with ruptured lines and water mains have not resulted in significant service disruptions.

Jeff Kruger, the supervisor of the city’s water filtration plant, said there were two line breaks early this week on Mill Street on the South Side. He said the city worked with the town of Binghamton to make repairs.

Breaks in a water line and in a sewer line resulted in the closure of a block of Riverside Drive between Oak and Murray streets for several hours on Tuesday.

Kruger said temporary repairs were made at that location that day and additional work was done the following day.

Kruger said the shifting of the ground because of changing weather conditions may contribute to some of the water line breaks. He said the age of the city’s infrastructure also is a factor when line ruptures occur.
