A water main break caused 234 residents in Bay Park to be without water on Monday night, the City of San Diego said.
The water main break was reported around 5 p.m. near Gardena Avenue after water was seen bubbling from under the street. It flooded the road and sidewalk in the area, San Diego Police Officer John Buttle said.
“It erupted out of the street, so the water just started pouring out, we had no notice and suddenly there was a large amount of water right where it has happened many times before,” David Sogliuzzo, resident of Bay Park said.
The city said a 12-inch asbestos cement water main broke impacting about 234 nearby properties. The City of San Diego Public Utilities staff was on-site working on repairs and placed temporary water wagons for impacted customers.
Sogliuzzo caught the water main break on his security camera. He said this is the fifth time this has happened in a span of three years.
NBC 7 covered a water main break along the same street in 2017.
“It’s amusing, we all wonder when they are going to finally make this work,” Sogliuzzo told NBC 7.
The city said they do not have a timeframe of when the repairs will be complete. Construction crews continued to make repairs Tuesday morning.
