Broken water line in Fallbrook causes flooding, collapsed pavement

Posted: Updated:

FALLBROOK (CNS) - A broken water line caused flooding on a Fallbrook street Saturday and the water damage resulted in collapsed pavement in an alley.

The flooding was reported about 8:05 a.m. in an alley near the 2500 block of Olive Hill Road, according to the California Highway Patrol and the Fallbrook Public Utilities District.

Water service in the area, which affects mostly nurseries, has since been turned off and the business were notified, according to Chris Miller, spokesman for the Fallbrook Public Utilities District. No homes were without water, he said.

The flooding from the broken line caused an approximately 10 by 20 foot area of asphalt in the area to begin to collapse, Miller said.

"The pieces are slowly falling in," Miller said as chunks of asphalt washed out. Miller said the broken line would most likely be repaired later Saturday.
