Three months after the quake, water line breaks continue to occur

Work to repair a broken water line began this morning on Lincoln Avenue near California Boulevard. Underground work in the westbound lanes is impacting traffic. Use alternate routes throughout the day to avoid delays. New breaks are occurring much more frequently that they would normally, due to residual damage from the August 24 earthquake. City crews are making repairs as quickly as possible while trying to keep water service supplied to all customers. Your patience is appreciated.
