Some College Area residents were left without water service Tuesday morning after a 12-inch, concrete water main broke, officials with the City of San Diego Public Utilities Department confirmed.
Public Utilities Department spokesman Arian Collins said a 12-inch, concrete water main break cut off water service to residents in the 4700 block of 54th Street. The rupture was reported at 5:13 a.m. and utility crews shut off water service to the impacted area at 5:55 a.m, Collins said.
Utility crews are currently working to fix the problem, but there will not be service in the area for much of the day. A water wagon is providing residents with water for drinking, cooking and other needs for the moment.
Collins says water service is expected to be fully restored in the area by 6 p.m.
