Main break leaves dozens of businesses without water

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS/CBS 8) - Crews were working to repair a 16-inch water main that ruptured Sunday on Morena Boulevard that left several area businesses without water service, according to the city Water Department.

The break was reported just before 5:40 a.m. in the 1500 block of Morena Boulevard, near Frankfort Street, according to San Diego police.

The area that surrounded the break in the mostly commercial area was barricaded off so city crews could make repairs, a water department spokeswoman said. Water service was lost to several businesses and would likely be out most of the day, she said.

Water service is expected to be repaired by midnight Sunday.

The cause of the break had yet to be determined, the spokeswoman said.
