    Water was gushing up from the ground right in front of the Promenade apartments across from the Office Depot and Sears in this area.

    City crews began repairs right around 4 a.m.

    They were able to open one eastbound lane of Rio San Diego before 7 a.m.

    The pipe may feed the surrounding irrigation system or water to any of these near by apartments or businesses.
