PHOTO: Water line break temporarily cuts service in Port Townsend

Water service was out to the North Beach area for about two hours Tuesday when an excavator from Shold Construction struck a water line when digging a trench for electrical lines.

Ian Jablonski, operations manager for water resources for the city of Port Townsend, said his crew installed an in-line valve to connect the older concrete pipe with the new section.

Shold is completing preparation work for a new development of eight homes on 56th Street.
