Bessemer Water Main Break

The Bessemer Courthouse, all municipal buildings and many business in Bessemer have been forced to close after the recurrence of a water main break. 

Bessemer Water crews have returned to the scene of last week’s 36 inch water main break.  A clamp which was placed Friday failed on Sunday, leaving many without water again.

Bessemer City officials have assured the public that a permanent solution is on the way.  They expect delivery tomorrow of a sleeve made in Texas to permanently seal the leek.

Until the sleeve’s arrival water service will not be restored to area homes and businesses.
