Screen capture from abc10: Nimitz flooded, 9-8-15

About 4:30 am, Tuesday, a 24-inch water main break caused massive flooding down Nimitz Boulevard at West Point Loma Boulevard. There was so much water, a sidewalk caved in and collapsed.

Police issued a Sig Alert for southbound Nimitz – closed between West Pt Loma and Famosa Boulevard.

By 8:30 am, crews had shut off the water but road was still closed.

No one knows why the break occurred. Repairs are expected to continue through Tuesday morning.

No injuries were reported and no homes were flooded. Water service to the area should not be affected, although some units might have low water pressure.

All the water-saving efforts by OBceans over these last 6 months just went down the drain. All those missed showers, those plants you allowed to die, turning off the faucet, the lawns you removed – just got trumped by San Diego’s aging, decrepit infrastructure.
