Well, it looks like the driveway may be at risk during the repair of the break. This crew drilled several holes, three across the driveway, and then inserts those long metal rods. The water is then temporarily turned on and with a stethoscope like device they listen to the noise transmitted by the rod to locate the closest point to the break.
The next phase involves a different crew which will have a backhoe, tandem & crew truck with several guys to dig the hole, insert a cage and effect the repair. It’s possible that they will need to cut out the driveway curb and remove some of the driveway. The ETA is unknown for the next phase, but they said they try to get the water back on with in one day or less. The crews are working until midnight most days and these guys have left to find the next one. apparently, it’s been a very busy summer for breaks. Normally, we here in Winnipeg associate these things more with extreme cold in the middle of winter, or as the frost is coming out in early spring. (Eric, I think some driveway repair might be required)
