Connecticut Ave. water main break

March 19, 2013 10:11 AM EDT Jerry Irvine, a spokesman for the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission, explains how a 54-inch, highly pressurized water main burst along Connecticut Avenue in Chevy Chase Lake, just inside the Capital Beltway, on March 18. No one was injured, and the break caused no significant property damage, but it blew a large crater in part of Chevy Chase Lake Drive, where part of the road and sidewalk were ripped out. The pipe was installed in 1980 (Katherine Shaver / The Washington Post)
