Water main break disrupts traffic at Somerset and Nall near Meadowbrook Park

first_imgWaterOne workers on Monday afternoon were repairing a water main break near the intersection of Somerset Dr. and Nall Ave., near Meadowbrook Park on the border between Prairie Village and Overland Park.Northbound traffic along Nall was being impacted during the late afternoon rush.According to a WaterOne spokesperson, the break was reported at about 3 p.m. Monday, and a crew was dispatched to repair it. WaterOne says four customers were affected by the break and anticipate their water service will be restored by 10 p.m. Monday night.A Shawnee Mission Post reader said Monday afternoon they saw asphalt pushed up from pressure from the pipe bursting underneath the road way at the intersection.Though no cause was given for this particular main break, WaterOne posted an explainer video to its Twitter account Monday afternoon saying main breaks are “unpredictable, but overly wet conditions (as well as dry) can cause the ground around pipes to shift.”The Kansas City area received several drenching rounds of rain Monday, which on top of another round of rain Saturday, came on the tail end of an extended dry spell in the region.The video on WaterOne’s Twitter account notes that WaterOne has more than 2,600 miles of pipeline in the metro, spread out over more than 270 square miles.WaterOne says main breaks can be reported at the utility’s 24-hour emergency contact line at 913-895-1800.last_img read more

AAL supports energy projects in Europe and Iraq

first_imgTwo of the generators, weighing nearly 350-tonnes each, were manufactured at the Siemens energy hub in Charlotte, North Carolina and transported to the Norfolk International Terminals in Virginia, USA.They were then loaded onboard the ship for onward transportation to Europe, where one of the generators was offloaded.After delivering the first unit, AAL Singapore called at the port of Hamburg in Germany to load an additional 317-tonne steam turbine before continuing on its journey to the Middle East.Both turbines were discharged at the port of Umm Qasr in Iraq. They are destined for the same power plant in Maysan.The generators were delivered on behalf of different customers, including the forwarder Bertling.“We have longstanding relationships with these charterers and worked extremely hard to deliver their cargoes on schedule, powering through the challenges to our sea and land-based operations of necessary Covid-19 restrictions and health and safety measures,” said Marco Wendt, chartering manager at AAL Europe.Eike Muentz, general manager at AAL Europe, added: “The US – Europe – Middle East – Asia trade is growing in importance for AAL and in May and June alone, we operated 12 multipurpose sailings calling at US ports, with more planned in July.”aalshipping.comlast_img read more
