Joshua Morrison/News Tuesday, a 27-inch sewer main was discovered sticking out of the ground near Delano Run near the Mount Vernon Nazarene University campus. The heavy rain last week washed away the dirt surrounding the pipe. A deadman’s anchor is holding the pipe in place. The health department has been notified as well as the Ohio EPA, but no spill has been reported into the creek. Layton Excavating from Newark has been working through the day Wednesday to shore up the line, prepare a temporary bypass and will divert the creek in order to fix the pipe. City officials hope to have the pipe repaired in a few days.
