However, this worsened the water leak and caused the separation of the pipe. The water service had separated at the meter near the dirt floor level. W hile trying to fix the separated pipe, Employee #1 received an electric shock fr om house supply current or the induced ground potential triggered by the water s aturation to electrical equipment and the surrounding work zone.
