Hundreds of residents of a Mission Valley condominium complex were without plumbing service for a second day today due to a water-line rupture just outside the gated facility.
The 12-inch concrete main in front of the 402-unit Presidio Place development on Friars Road broke when a trench dug earlier as part of a sewer project collapsed about two hours before sunrise Thursday, according to the San Diego Water Department.
Crews were unable to begin patching the water line until about 5 p.m., after sanitation crews finished the sewer job, SDWD spokesman Arian Collins said.
Repairs to the main were complete about 2 this morning, but when personnel recharged the line with water, a valve broke, Collins said.
Crews spent the rest of the morning dealing with the failed flow regulator. They hoped to have that secondary task wrapped up by mid-afternoon, the spokesman said.
The city stationed two "water wagons" at the complex to serve the affected residents, according to Collins.
