SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- A massive water main break in North Park Tuesday morning flooded streets as the neighborhood continues to cope with issues related to the breaks.

According to the city, a 30-inch cast iron water main transmission line broke around 6 a.m. on Ray Street at Capps Street.

Currently, the City of San Diego is in the process of replacing all cast iron pipes. After that process is complete, the city says it will assess concrete mains.

Crews hope to have all cast iron pipes removed by 2023.


Over the last several years, several major water mains broke in the North Park neighborhood.
