    The break appeared to have blown out a manhole cover in the middle of the intersection at 54th Street and Trojan Avenue.

    Several businesses near the intersection say they have no interruption of water service. The water pipe break affected 25 customers including Horace Mann Middle School according to a San Diego Water Department spokesperson.
