Routes 23 and 252 reopen after Valley Forge sewer main break

TREDYFFRIN TOWNSHIP, Pa. - March 20, 2014

The sewage flowed from the roadway and into the creek even hours after the break. Fortunately officials say the environmental impact appears to be minimal.

Crews worked for days to fix the broken 30-inch main that spilled millions of gallons of raw sewage into the Valley Forge Park creek.

New iron pipes were installed and the roadway was repaved.

This is the second time in a few weeks and the third time in recent years that part of this main has ruptured.
