Water Main Breaks in Old Town Neighborhood

The water main broke at the intersection of Juan and Sunset streets, leaving some customers in the area without running water

Some Old Town San Diego residents were left without water service Thursday morning after a water main broke, a city official confirmed.

Arian Collins, spokesperson with the City of San Diego Public Utilities Department, said an 8-inch concrete water main broke at Juan and Sunset streets just before 4:30 a.m. Crews responded to the scene and shut off water service in the area about an hour after the water main ruptured.

As of 7:45 a.m., Collins said residents in the 2300 block of Guy Street remained without water service as crews worked to repair the water main.

He said a water wagon is on site to provide those customers with water for drinking, cooking and other needs.

Repairs in the area are expected to be completed by 2 p.m. At that time, water service will resume. The cause of the main break was not released.
