Water main break on Glen View Rd leaves Forest Park residents dry

If you live in Forest Park, the historic residential section surrounding much of Highland Golf Course, you might wish you had cooked your Thanksgiving dinner yesterday. Oh, and taken an extra long shower.

A water main line broke today on Glen View Rd and flooded the street for hours.  The Birmingham Water Works was alerted early on, but reportedly said there were several breaks around Birmingham which delayed their appearance until late this afternoon.

 

As of 9pm, the faucets are all dry.  We’re starting to feel like the Cahaba River.
