Bay City News Service—Thirty-six East Bay Municipal Utility District customers in Berkeley can turn on their faucets again today after a water main break left them without water service Tuesday afternoon.
The 8-inch main ruptured around 4 p.m. Tuesday near the intersection of Cedar and Seventh streets, district spokesman Charles Hardy said. The pipe break caused some flooding, but traffic was not affected, Hardy said.
Crews repaired the main and restored service to the affected customers by 2 a.m., he said. No property damage was reported.
