Water main break creates sinkhole in Poway

Posted: Updated:

POWAY (NEWS 8) —  A broken water main and sinkhole that shut down a road in Poway Wednesday afternoon has been repaired. 

The gaping hole, which was bout five feet wide by five feet long, opened up on Martincoit Road, south of Painted Rock Elementary School. 

City crews said it all started Tuesday with a leak down the street. 

Crews returned Wednesday to re-pressurize the area and that caused the collar connecting two water lines to come off. 

Fortunately, water service to people in the area was not affected.
