Water Main Break in Silver Lake?

Just coming home and saw literally a torrent of water pouring down a hill near our house. We followed the river up the hill to it’s source, which seemed to be at the corner of Micheltorena and Effie where water was bubbling up out of cracks on the road. Bubbling might not be strong enough of a word, spraying up. A good several inches in height from the pressure. I assumed we’d have no water when we got home but things seem to be fine here. Can’t find anything on the local reports, but 980 KFWB was reporting this afternoon that pipes were breaking all over town.

    I checked our 9-1-1 log, and that seems to be one of the few incidents that your Fire Department did not respond to.

    If you have any questions about your water service or the safety of same, please don’t hesitate to call our friends at DWP at (800) DIAL-DWP.

    Respectfully Yours in Safety and Service,
