Sunset Boulevard Partially Reopen After Burst Water Main Repairs
After another regularly scheduled water main break in Los Angeles, Department of Water and Power crews have patched the leak that flooded Sunset Boulevard and La Cienega Boulevard on Friday and partially reopened the street.
One westbound and two eastbound lanes of the Sunset Strip reopened shortly after 10:30 p.m. on Saturday night after crews capped the 98-year old pipe and filled the excavated hole with slurry, a mix of cement and dirt. The mix will take about 48 hours to set, and crews are expected to make final repairs beginning Monday. The water main burst spewed about 10,000 gallons per minute at its peak, according to KTLA.
By comparison, the UCLA water main burst spewed 75,000 gallons per minute.
