Water Main Break Floods Coldwater Canyon Avenue
Posted by LaDale Anderson on Dec 16, 2007 - 4:54:36 PM

STUDIO CITY—It wasn’t a typical morning commute on Coldwater Avenue on Monday, December 10, 2007.  A water main pipe busted causing gallons of water to be released in the area of Mulholland Drive between Coldwater and Benedict Canyon.  According to L.A. City Fire about 1,000 gallons of water were released per minute.  The water main break occurred sometime around 1:00 in the morning.  The water traveled through people’s backyards, ravines and down hill to main roads in the area. 

Batt. Chief Peter Venesh of the L.A. City Fire told KCAL 9 news reporter Dave Mekem that only minor street damage was caused by the flood. Most areas saw an increase in mud and debris near their homes.  The only exception to any amount of sufficient damage was the damage done to rocker Eddie Van Halen’s home.  The rocker wasn’t at home at the time of the water main break.  The water main break caused a mudslide outside of the rocker’s home that caused damage to his front gate.  Los Angeles Fire officials acted quickly to prevent the mudslide from causing further damage by utilizing miracle grow and sand bags to contain the water.  The sea of water caused heavy traffic backups in the area that is normally busy during the morning rush hour.  It also delayed classes at Harvard Westlake School.  At about 7:45 am officials were able to fix the water main break.
