Water main break leads to sink hole
According to James Johnson, supervisor of water main for Columbia, a busted fitting is to blame for the sink hole. Workers responded quickly to the incident, excavating the line and completing the routine repair the same day.
Johnson says this is an isolated incident and not related to the water main problems that Columbia faced on Huger Street two years ago.
While the water line is repaired, it will be later in the week before the street is completely repaired.
