EL CAJON, Calif. -- Water service returned Friday morning to the hundreds of East County homes and businesses affected by a main break, but crews remained hard at work on repairs.

A 16-inch water main on Cordial Road broke around 7 p.m., crews with Padre Dam Municipal Water District told FOX 5.

Officials shut off water to as many as 200 nearby homes and businesses, including a Walmart.

By midnight utility workers had restored water service to everyone in the area, though crews were expected to keep working throughout the night to repair damaged infrastructure.
