Neighborhood floods when workers crack water main
SAN DIEGO — A ruptured water line caused flooding in an Encanto-area neighborhood Thursday.
It took city personnel about an hour to halt the flow, which inundated traffic lanes but caused no structural damage, SDWD spokesman Arian Collins said.
The accident interrupted water service to the 6800 block of Broadway, the 900 block of 69th Street and the 7000 block of Akins Avenue.
Crews finished repairs to the water main at 3:15 p.m., Collins said. Water service was restored at 4:15 p.m.
