Water main break in El Cajon causes sinkhole

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Multiple agencies are responding to a water main break in El Cajon that caused a sinkhole.

The San Diego Sheriff’s Department and California Highway Patrol responded to a report of a water main break near Ridge Hill Road and Cordial Road in El Cajon.

Lakeside Fire Department was able to shut off the water, but the street was already beginning to cave in.

Around 180 customers are without water in the neighborhood, and residents were advised of a boil-water advisory until they repair the pipe and test the water.
