Philadelphia Water Department spokesman John DiGiulio last week told residents that some water mains will soon be replaced in Northwood and Frankford.
Go to civic association meetings in Frankford and Northwood and you’re sure to hear someone bring up Orthodox Street. To say the street has been battered by the years would be an understatement, and right now the Philadelphia Water Department is digging it up to install new mains.
A small section of Verree Road in Bustleton will be closed for three weeks to a month to repair damage caused by an early Monday-morning water main break.
It was a beautiful morning on Monday, except at Verree and Red Lion roads. There, the day started out wet, muddy and irritating.
Flooding from a water main break damaged two homes and two businesses, while interrupting water service late Sunday night and early Monday in the Northeast.
Some of Port Richmond’s residents and businesses are being disturbed by dust from ongoing construction, and wonder when the street will return to normal.
