A little off

line-break 1002

Bellefontaine Water Superintendent Tim Newland and Assistant Plant Operator Tim Thornburg hold a tape measure to show the six-foot distance between a service line for natural gas service and a painted mark left by a utility location service on the pavement at Milligan and Omaha drives. Water crews were there to replace a valve in a water main, but had to stop after a gas line breach around 10:20 a.m. The project was further delayed when Vectren Energy crews hit a three-inch gas main while trying to isolate the break for repair. Firefighters of the Bellefontaine Fire Department were on the scene for about four hours. (EXAMINER PHOTO | JOEL E. MAST)
