City workers were on the job late yesterday repairing what appears to have been a broken water main on Kipling St. just east of Dunlavy in Mandell Place. The crews dug out the driveway and installed new pipe only 2 days after Swamplot’s report on neighborhood pumping operations (and a Houston Press follow-on) — but more than 2 weeks after the leak was originally reported to the city. No word yet on whether repairs have been completed.
