Marathon Crews Find Gas Pipe Leak in Big Walnut Sports Park

Marathon has been repairing a leak on an old pipe this last weekend that occurred in one of Greencastle’s parks. According to reports Marathon has been trying to re-energize an old 3 year old eight-inch pipeline, but during the testing process the pipe sprung a leak. No petroleum products were used in the pipeline during their test run. Instead Marathon crews opted to use a colored liquid to easily and safety find a leak if any were to occur. Over a weeks time Marathon crews eventually found the leak inside Big Walnut Sports Park. The source of the leak was caused by a crack in the pipeline that caused the liquid to shoot down into the drainage tile. Crews were able to repair the pipeline and reseed the ground.
