Water Main Break Leaves Some North Park Residents Without Water

An 8-inch in diameter concrete water main broke Thursday evening, leaving more than 70 North Park customers without water.

According to a spokeswoman for the city of San Diego, the water main ruptured near the intersection of Grim Avenue and Dwight Street.

This is the second time in eight days.

Eleni Psyllos lives near the intersection and said the problems started after the street was newly paved. After the rupture last Wednesday, she thought the main had been fixed.

"It’s very sad to see this happen again. It’s patchwork,” stressed Psyllos.

"A car went through the intersection and it knocked something and then the break happened again," she added.

Approximately three blocks were without water service beginning at 6 p.m.
