Lincoln water main ruptures

February 28, 2012

LINCOLN — A weekend break in a 20-inch water main had Old River Road closed to traffic Monday as work to repair the leak continued late into the night.
The affected line carries drinking water up from North Providence and supplies a standpipe in Manville but most local services could be rerouted, according to John Faile, town water superintendent.
As a result, only 3 to 4 homes were reported to be without water as the repair was under way Monday, Faile said.

The late founder of Ciro’s envisioned Hampton Court as a sort of Tudor-inspired rendition of a medieval, English castle, circa King Edward III, and he spared no expense in getting the details right. He covered the walls with lavish, oak paneling imported from England, hung hand-crafted chandeliers from the ceiling and plunked French crystal on the tables beside sterling silver dinner utensils.
