HOLLYWOOD HILLS—On Monday, September 23, two large water main ruptures were discovered in Hollywood Hills area.

 

The ruptures were reported between 2:48 a.m. and 3:20 a.m. along the 1800 block of El Cerrito Place and the 1900 block of Grace Avenue.

 

The pavements had to be dug in order to repair the pipes. The total number of residences that the water pipes served, between El Cerrito and Grace Avenue was around twenty. The water pipe by El Cerrito Place was eight inches and the water main at Grace Avenue was six inches.

 

Water mains, so called because of its principal function as the main pipe in the water supply system are pipes installed underground to supply water to residential areas. Water main breaks usually result from external corrosion of the pipe. Changing soil conditions can cause weakened pipes to break.

 

According to the Department of Water and Power, the two incidents were unrelated.
