Main break shuts down part of Mission Gorge Road in Santee

Posted: Updated:

SANTEE (NEWS 8) - Work continues on Mission Gorge Road Wednesday morning in Santee after a water main break flooded streets. 

The break happened Tuesday at the intersection of Fanita Drive and Mission Gorge Road. 

Sheriff's blocked Mission Gorge Road until public works crews could arrive to shut off water to the 16-inch pipe. Crews said it's a recycled line underneath the median. 

The 16-inch water recycle line distributes water for irrigation throughout the community so we do not have homes or businesses that are without water currently," said Allen Carlisle, CEO and general manager of Padre Dam Municipal Water District. 

Crews will be working throughout the day to repair the water main, and plan to have it fixed and all lanes open by Wednesday afternoon.
