Main Break Leaves College Area Without Water Service

The water main ruptured in the 4700 block of 54th Street early Tuesday morning

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.
