More Pipeline Testing In Audrain County Tuesday

More pipeline testing in Audrain County is scheduled to take place this upcoming Tuesday, April 9th.

According to an email from Energy Transfer they are hydro-testing to test the strength of the pipe to identify any area that may need repairs.

Officials say they have already identified 3 sections of the pipe that needs to be removed and replaced.

It is possible that nearby landowners may hear a noise if the line does not hold the water during hydro-testing, however officials say there is no cause for alarm.

A breach of the pipeline was reported during the most recent hydro-testing on Thursday, April 4th about 200 feet from where a break on March 3rd caused a massive explosion outside of Mexico along Highway 15.
