Water Main Break in Fairfax Village Causes Flooding, Damage
An 8-inch pipe ruptured overnight in the vicinity of Fairfax High School, according to cbs2. The line break "caused street flooding and reduced water service to about 30 nearby homes." As a result of the flooding, the 400 block of North Vista Street sustained damage. The cause of the break is not immediately known, and early LADWP guesses include factors such as "age, corrosion, traffic patterns in that area or something else." A recent scientific study attributes LA's increase in water main breaks to our usage restriction pattern.
