On December 23, 2013, at approximately 8:48 AM the Philadelphia Water Department (PWD) experienced a failure of a 48” transmission main in the intersection of Frankford Ave. & Torresdale Ave., which flooded the intersection and abutting businesses. All impacted businesses should have already spoken to a Customer Service Representative. If that still has not occurred, we ask that they contact our Customer Service Representatives by calling 215-685-9602.Repair and restoration is expected to require a few months. PWD will continue to update impacted residents and the neighborhood as to the duration of the repair and restoration.Updates: March 19, 2014The department has determined that it is prudent to replace an equal amount of pipe in the adjacent main due to its close proximity to the broken main and possible damage it may have sustained when the main broke.
Philadelphia's drinking water is safe and of high quality and providing this safe, reliable and essential service is our top priority. The Water Department continues to appreciate your patience and understanding while we work to restore this area to normal. If you have any questions, you may contact John DiGiulio at John.DiGiulio@phila.gov.
