At 11:38 a.m. on March 6, 2018, an employee was using an electric impact gun to tighten the bolts connecting a 12 Inch diameter pipe flange and the end cap in place. As the employee stood over the vertical pipe tightening the bolts, a connection below ground failed. This failure sent the pressurized pipe upwards and caused the impact gun to strike the employee in his chest. The employee was killed.
