SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A water-main break left about 50 homes in Linda Vista without working plumbing for more than 11 hours Monday.
The ruptured 6-inch-diameter cast-iron pipeline began inundating the roadway in the 6600 block of Lanston Street shortly before 1 a.m., according to the San Diego Water Department.
It took crews about two hours to halt the overflow, which sent "a lot" of mud cascading down the sloping road, SDWD spokesman Arian Collins said. Outside of cracked and collapsed street pavement, no property damage was reported, he said.
The city sent in two "water wagons" to serve the affected residents pending repairs, which were complete by 12:15 p.m., according to Collins.
