Water main break in University City

SAN DIEGO (CNS) – City utility crews were working Thursday to restore running water to some University City residents and businesses left without after a contractor struck a water main, city utility officials said.

The 12-inch concrete pipe was broken near the intersection of Genesee Avenue and Decoro Street around 10:45 p.m. Wednesday, according to city Public Utilities Department spokesman Arian Collins.

Those in the 4100 block of Decoro Street were without water service, but water wagons were brought to the site, Collins said.

Collins said crews expected to have the repairs completed sometime in the early afternoon.
