Natural Gas Line Severed

Posted on 07 September 2010 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—Emergency responders were on standby right before noon Tuesday, anticipating a possible evacuation of the Boone HyVee. Sanitary sewer work on 8th Street at Tama Street resulted in a severed natural gas main. The 4-inch main was putting out quite a bit of gas, but officials reported that strong winds were dissipating the gas and not allowing it to accumulate. Personnel from Alliant Utilities were quickly on the scene to make necessary repairs. H & W Construction has had several gas main breaks during the sanitary sewer rehabilitation project.
