ANOTHER Atlantic City Sewer Line Leak at Bader Field.
Just like a few years back, the giant sewer (poop) pipe running thru Bader Field… into the ACUA facility … has ruptured again.
Bader Field is controlled by the CRDA. Were they aware this leak could be weeks old?
Mayor Marty Small and Atlantic City Council President George Tibbitt better put their waders on.
Fecal matter in the Atlantic City waterways is dangerous. Did Atlantic City Council President George Tibbitt act quickly enough?
The City of Atlantic City Office of Emergency Management was notified Sunday morning that a leak in a 30-inch main sewer line was discovered on the Bader Field site closest to Route 40/Albany Avenue.
The sewer line services the Longport, Margate, and Ventnor communities, as well as the Chelsea Heights section of Atlantic City and Seaview Harbor Marina in Egg Harbor Township.
The Atlantic City Health Department and Atlantic City Office of Emergency Management are working with the Atlantic County Utilities Authority (ACUA) and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection to ensure the safety of the community and waterways.
Residents and businesses located in the affected areas are requested to conserve water to help alleviate and minimize the flow of water through the force main.
This area is utilized by recreational anglers. Atlantic City and the ACUA are actively working to notify local marinas, bait and tackle shops, and private dock owners.
ACUA contactors have responded and a plan has been developed to repair the leak.
Arthur R. Henry Inc. Contractors and Engineers were on site today, and will begin the installation of a bypass system on Monday, April 20.
