Broken hydrant creates mess in Spring Valley

SPRING VALLEY (CBS 8) - A broken hydrant sent water gushing hundreds of feet into the air on a Spring Valley street Friday, causing road closures and leaving hundreds of customers without power.

It happened at the intersection of Troy Street and Central Avenue east of SR-125 and south of SR-94. The geyser was hitting power lines, making it necessary for SDG&E to shut off power in the area before the Helix Water District could repair the hydrant.

It was unclear what caused the hydrant to break.

Troy Street was closed between Sweetwater and Bancroft during repairs.
