High water

City worker Doug Moffett drives through deep water at the intersection of Prospect Street and Newgarden Avenue to place a barricade on Prospect Street. Police initially shut down Newgarden Avenue between Railroad Street and Mullins Street and at Prospect for the water line break. Once the water receded, they reopened the section from Railroad Street to Prospect, with the section of Newgarden from Prospect to Mullins Street still closed. (Salem News photo by Mary Ann Greier)
