A 50- to 60-foot doughy mass is clogging a sewer line under the city's main drag, and crews have been unable to budge it.
"We're not sure exactly what it is," Public Services Director David Jones said Wednesday. "We're just trying to get rid of it. We want it to stop clogging up our pipe."
Jones said crews opened a manhole at the Bates Street intersection and saw the clog - an oozing, white blob that looks like uncooked dough.
"We've tried punching through it, but each time we do, it just oozes back over the hole," he said. "It really looks like dough." [Source]
