(FOX 11/ CNS) - A water main break in Woodland Hills today caused
street flooding and opened up a hole that shut down a busy thoroughfare,
Southbound Topanga Canyon Boulevard was shut down from Victory Boulevard
south to Oxnard Street, next to several major malls and other businesses.
The break in an 8-inch line was reported at 9:40 a.m. at 6325 Topanga
Canyon Blvd. It knocked out service to three commercial customers, said Terry
Schneider of the Department of Water and Power.
Crews were on scene making repairs to the line, and it was estimated
that service would be restored by around 5 p.m., she said.
Once the line is repaired, a city Bureau of Street Services crew will
complete roadway repairs and reopen the boulevard, Schneider said.
