Huntsville-Area Pipeline Problems Being Repaired

By  | 

Work continues northeast of Huntsville after an apparent rupture in jet fuel and water pipelines.

Walker County authorities say work was being done on the fuel line Saturday when the rupture occurred. Some of that fuel then reportedly got into the water line, and repairs have been underway to flush out and repair the system.

Authorities say around 100 residents were affected, and some in the area say they were evacuated and have not been allowed back home.
