Westville’s ongoing water main project comes across a lot of old pipes that have been underground for over 100 plus years. The work area have been marked out by all the utility companies but sometimes some get missed.
Gas was leaking from a pipe during operations today. Westville and National Park Fire Departments on scene monitored the area with meters awaiting the gas company. While on this call a second assignment at the West Park Apartments for fumes came in. Gloucester City Fire Department handled that assignment when they cleared they were requested to respond over to Delsea Drive due to meter readings needed in the residential homes. The Gas leak was secured all readings were negative.
