City works to repair water main at golf course

A break in a 36-inch water main sent water spewing onto a golf course in Northeast Baltimore yesterday.

Workers from the Department of Public Works were making repairs about noon to the line at Clifton Park Golf Course, said Kurt Kocher, a spokesman for the department.

Officials were working yesterday to determine what caused the break in the transmission line. They said that the residential water supply likely wouldn't be affected by the break. There was no estimate of the amount of water spilled.

"At this time, we don't expect it to have any impact on anyone," Kocher said, explaining that water supplied to homes and businesses comes from smaller pipes that feed off the transmission lines. He said that repairs could take days.
