Traffic is being detoured after a water main broke at 6th and Reynolds streets.

A sink hole is next to a spot that had been worked on before, said Tom Wiedmeier, the director of Augusta-Richmond County Utilities.

He said there are two other deep pot holes that will also be examined.

“We will close the intersection until we get the water shut off and can examine the problem,” Wiedmeier said.

Don't try to blame the RR.
Unpublished

Augusta politicians removed them decades ago. Don't you remember? ARC collected extra taxes for the purpose of removing the RR from the CBD. RR which could never be removed because they have a thing called "domain" which is an federal entitlement. You can go over it or under it.

BAH BAH BAH And all the sheeple said lead on fair shepherd.

Its the citizens up in Summerville who catch all

of the "storm water" and send it down to the CBD. They have been getting away with this for decades. They use storm drains and paved streets to collect the rain water and they dispense it to Walton Way and 13th street. Immediately place a storm water responsibility fee on their property. To do less would be criminal. Criminal acts and ARC government. Things that do go together, Ernie and Cookie monster.

Once this was part of the Savannah River flow.
Unpublished

Some GA engineers decided to move the river flow over a couple of blocks. But science,nature and topography seem to effect fluid mechanics.

It was flooding downtown on Thursday morning at Walton Way and 13th, the University Hospital parking lot and Frog Hollar.

Bring on the rain, we mean stormwater recovery tax, we mean fee. It can be collect for decades and it will still flood in the CBD downhill from HILL.
