Water main break in Mountain View

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - An underground water-pipeline connector broke in a Mountain View-area neighborhood early Monday, flooding a street and leaving nearly two dozen homes without functional plumbing for about six hours.

The utility failure in the 700 block of South 44th Street was reported shortly after 5 a.m., according to the San Diego Water Department.

It took city crews roughly an hour to halt the overflow, which caused no reported structural flooding but damaged a parked vehicle, SDWD spokesman Arian Collins said.

The mishap left 22 homes without water service until about 11 a.m., Collins said.

The damaged roadway was expected to be patched and reopened in the early afternoon.
