Broken fire water line disrupts service, damages road

 

A fire water service line broke Monday night and prompted public works crews to briefly shut down a connected main water line, a water department supervisor said.

The break in the line that fire officials use was reported around 9:30 p.m. Monday at 505 Cypress Point Drive, water department supervisor Will Medina said.

To get to the broken valve that was spilling water onto the street, the water main that runs along Cypress Point Drive to Moffett Boulevard had to be shut off around 11 p.m., Medina said.

The main line was turned back on around midnight, he said.

Some of the nearby residents' water service was affected during the brief shutdown, he said.

There was some damage to the road and sidewalk where the line broke, but those repairs will not be made until Thursday, which is when the fire line is expected to be fixed, Medina said.

In the meantime the fire line is turned off.
