At approximately 10:00 AM, a drill crew installing inclinometers struck and damaged a 24" water line at the Irvington Portal. San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) and contractor personnel responded immediately and were able to stop the flow of water and contain it within the SFPUC's property.
The damaged water line serves the City of Hayward. The SFPUC immediately notified the City of Hayward so that the City can set up secondary pumps and storage measures. No service disruptions are anticipated as a result of the damage.
SFPUC and contractor personnel are currently working to repair the water line. Upon completion the water line will be disinfected and inspected prior to returning to service.
