Crews Continue To Investigate Cause Of Steam Pipe Explosion, Make Repairs

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Veolia North America is continuing to make repairs on the steam pipe that exploded in Baltimore City last week.

There is still no answer on what caused the steam pipe to explode.

Veolia says the crew has access to the line break and is continuing to excavate around the area where the line break happened to determine repairs needed.

On Friday, Veolia said 90 percent of the site had been cleaned.

Veolia reports it has approximately 20 staff and contractor personnel on site working on the repairs as well as completing cleaning the area.

Cars damaged in the explosion are still stuck on the closed off street.

Cyril Bell says he’s been waiting a week for some answers on whether or not his car will be safe to drive.

“It ain’t got nothing but 60,000 miles on it,” Bell says. “If it’s asbestos, I don’t want that back. I don’t think nobody want it back.”

Veolia says it’s sorry for the inconvenience to car owners and has directed owners to contact a claims service.

Access to Eutaw Street businesses was restored on Thursday night.
