New Year’s Day water main break in Venice under investigation

A six-inch water main in Venice ruptured New Year’s Day and utility crews had to restore service to about 50 customers, according to the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.

The cast iron main broke around 6:40 p.m. at Victoria and Superior avenues, said utility spokeswoman Gale Harris.

Crews shut off the water and said it would take up to eight hours to restore the service to LADWP who were affected, she said.

The break, which did not cause any damage to the street, was still under investigation, Harris said.

It’s unknown as of this time how much water was lost, she said.
