Two water mains break in L.A., disrupting service to dozens of customers
Water service was interrupted this morning for dozens of customers in Reseda and the Miracle Mile area after two separate water mains ruptured, said a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.
A 6-inch main broke at about midnight at South Cloverdale Avenue and West 8th Street in the Miracle Mile, disrupting service for about 15 residents, said Maychelle Yee, a DWP spokeswoman. It caused minor flooding but did not damage vehicles or homes, she said.
The second main broke shortly after 2 a.m. in Reseda, where about 30 residential and business customers lost service. The 12-inch main broke at Tampa Avenue and Vanowen Street, forcing officials to close Tampa while crews made repairs. No damage was reported.
