Homeowner Albert Young, 78, shoots video on his cellphone of work Friday to fix large holes in his backyard at 1713 Wyoming Ave. in the Green Ridge section of Scranton. The damage came from stormwater from intermittent Meadow Brook.

The work by T.S.E. Inc. Utility and General Contracting of Dickson City is part of a Scranton project to fix an old, collapsed stormwater conduit that caused holes in several properties in the 1700 block of Wyoming Avenue.

Workers used a crane on Ryerson Avenue above Young’s yard to lower a concrete cast fitting into place. Long sections of 5-foot-diameter, steel-reinforced PVC pipe will follow, installed in stages through Young’s yard and three affected neighboring properties.

A fifth property will have voids filled in under a garage. The project is expected to take about two weeks.
