SAN DIEGO -- Repairs were completed Tuesday on a water main that ruptured underneath a Mission Beach alley, creating a geyser that flooded the access road along with several homes.

The broken 12-inch-diameter PVC water pipe began flooding Bayside Lane near Seagirt Court about 5:30 p.m. Monday, said Arian Collins, spokesman for the San Diego Public Utilities Department.

The mishap left dozens of residences near Mission Bay without water service until crews were able to get the overflow controlled, which took about 90 minutes.

A single house in the neighborhood remained without water service until utility personnel completed the repair job about 3:30 this afternoon, Collins said.
