PARMA, Ohio -- Water main breaks were the culprit the last few weeks in Parma where streets were flooded with traffic diverted. On Sept. 21, a power surge in the city led to water main breaks on W. Pleasant Valley Road and Ridge Road. The former had traffic reduced to one lane, while the latter was closed from Day Drive to the intersection. Parma Mayor Tim DeGeeter said Cleveland Water Department and Public Utilities personnel explained quite the anomaly that led to six water main breaks in the area.
