Last year, the city spent months reaming out the water supply lines throughout a portion of Northeast Minneapolis in order to improve water pressure in the neighborhood. The city dug holes at or near virtually each intersection in the affected area, provided temporarly water lines to each house and inserted liners into the lines.

After what seemed like an eternity to this resident, the project was finished and the holes were filled. My water pressure, and that of my neighbors, experienced no noticeable improvement.

Less than a year later, a sink hole has developed at one of the filled in access spots on Lincoln St. NE. A crew arrived today with a backhoe. 

Do you have a a story to tell about the project? Is your intersection sinking?
