SCHENECTADY - We now know what caused a January mudslide that crashed into a home in Schenectady. The city engineer tells The Daily Gazette a broken water service line is to blame.
Chris Wallin says the water line servicing a home on Barney Street broke before the slide. Water went into the basement, seeped through the floor and into the hillside, causing it to fail -- and slide into a home on Nott Street. Three people were hurt.
NewsChannel 13 is waiting for a call back from Wallin for more details. We'll keep you updated.
