Description: Photograph used for a story in the Oklahoma City Times newspaper. Caption: "Hundreds of miniature fountains sprung up along the curbing at NW Park and Pennsylvania Friday morning in the wake of a two-inch rainfall which covered the newly-surfaced street. Fred Cobb, city consulting engineer, said workmen are ripping up the new blacktop to see whether the water was from a water main or storm sewer. He said the pressure behind the water, welling up strong enough to push dirts from under the paving, indicated a water main break. Work on Linwood resufacing project in the area of the break was completed only Thursday. Storm sewer overflows occured in other widely scattered section of the city Friday morning. (O-5-25-52) Clogged City Sewer Damages Paving A stopped up 12-inch sanitary sewer caused the water spruts in Linwood paving, engineers reported Saturday. Fred Cobb, consulting engineer, said the extend of damage caused to the new bond issue street has not yet been determined...We will take some test bores and try some load tests on the paving when it dries up," Cobb said. "Until then we won't know just how much the subbase has been damaged."
