KNX1070 is reporting that the head of the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power will resign today. A rash of recent water main breaks, including flooding in Studio City and a fire truck sucking sinkhole in Valley Village, apparently has played a role in CEO David Nahai's decision. An announcement by Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is expected at 1 p.m.

Update: Yes, David Nahai is resigning, according to statement by Villaraigosa. He will now be the Senior Advisor for the Clinton Climate Initiative.
