From North City Water District
North City Water District received a call last night around 10 pm from a concerned resident who saw water bubbling up in the street. Crews arrived and repaired the break in the 6" water main in the southbound lane of 5th Avenue NE.
Police arrived on site to block off the traffic while crews were repairing the water main.
City staff added "Road Closed" signage and barricades and sent out notices on Alert Shoreline.
The repair to the leak took about 6 hours. Two patches were made in the roadway. No customers were without water service during this time.
North City Water District would like to thank the Police Department for helping out while the crews got set up to complete the repairs. North City Water District will also continue to monitor the condition of the asphalt in this area and make repairs, if any, are necessary.
