COTTONWOOD (CNS) - A water main ruptured Tuesday in a neighborhood near Valhalla High School, leaving dozens of homes temporarily without functional plumbing and forcing the closure of a stretch of roadway.
The ruptured 12-inch concrete pipeline began overflowing along Hillsdale Road in the Cottonwood area about 3 p.m., said Tenille Otero, communications officer for the Otay Water District.
It took utility personnel about 40 minutes to get the flow to the failed main shut off, Otero said. The deluge caused some flooding in a residential garage but had no other effects on structures, according to Cal Fire.
The mishap left 55 homes without water service. Crews hoped to have most of the addresses back online by early evening, according to Otero.
The affected section of street was expected to remain closed to through traffic overnight between Chase Avenue and Jamacha Road, according to the county Department of Public Works.
