Work continues to repair sewer line near Rapid Run and Man o' War

Contractors were working Monday to repair a portion of the 24 inch sewer line that collapsed near the intersection of Man o' War Boulevard and Rapid Run Drive Sunday, according to a Division of Environmental Policy news release.

Sewage had started to flow into an unknown creek and then a storm sewer before entering a nearby pond at the Racquet Club apartment complex off of Rapid Run Drive. Pumps have been installed to stop wastewater from running over the pond's spillway and flowing downstream, the release said. Residents were asked to avoid the area near the pond until pumping is completed and the pond cleaned.

Contractors are setting up bypass pumps in the Gar Court area to reroute the sewage around the break in the line so that the pipe can be repaired.

No traffic delays are expected at the intersection of Man o' War Boulevard and Rapid Run Drive due to repairs.
