Crews working to repair broken main in Studio City that left 30 customers without water

Crews worked Wednesday to repair a broken water main that left 30 customers without water in Studio City, officials said.

Flooding was reported at about 4:30 p.m. Tuesday after an eight-inch pipe broke near 7809 Torreyson Drive.

“We worked all night, fingers to the bone, and now they are back-filling the pipe,” said Terry Schneider, a spokeswoman for the L.A. Department of Water and Power.

The homes should have water service fully restored within the next couple of hours, Schneider said.
