"We worked the case all day and a suspect has been taken into custody but we are just at the beginning of that process so we will not have an official press release until tomorrow morning," he said at 7 p.m.
Ortolano added more arrests may be pending as related to the incident. The details of the official press release will be published in Friday's OBSERVER.
Water levels in city fell quickly
Tuesday night's accident involving a gushing water hydrant caused water levels at the Dunkirk treatment plant to lower seven feet an hour.
"Things like last night ... The pride I feel for the Police Department, my people and what we went through. That was the worst one I have ever been through. The energy and the devotion of these guys, we're out there frozen, cold, miserable and dangerous. We dodged a bullet. Kudos to everybody at the water department, the fire department, everybody that helped," Director of Public Works Tony Gugino said Wednesday night.
Charges are pending against the tractor-trailer operator who dislodged the water hydrant at the corner of Main and Second streets.
