Water line break floods Encanto street

SAN DIEGO - A water line break sent water gushing into a street in Encanto Thursday morning.

The break occurred at about 10 a.m. at a construction site at 69th Street and Akins Avenue. A contractor struck a 12-inch concrete water main, according to Arian Collins, spokesperson for the San Diego Public Utilities Department.

The water main was shut down at 11 a.m. The 6800 block of Broadway, the 900 block of 69th Street and the 7000 block of Akins Avenue were without water as of noon.

There was no estimated time on when service would be restored, Akins said.
