Workers pave over water leak on Atlanta street

A private contract hired by the city of Atlanta paved over a water leak in southwest Atlanta on Monday, but a company official said that they only did what the city wanted them to do.

“I asked the supervisor, the contractors, I said ‘Did you realize that the water was leaking?’ He said, ‘Yes.’ I said ‘If the water is leaking where the asphalt is” and he said ‘Yes, but it will crack eventually.’” said Gitonia Morrison-McBride.

There was a considerable and steady flow according to McBride, a homeowner in the neighborhood being repaved. She said there had been a steady stream there for days, even before the “no parking” warning signs were put up. She thinks that it is wasting taxpayers’ dollars.
