Water main break affects customers, impacts traffic in Alamo

Repairs are still ongoing to an East Bay Municipal Utility District water main that ruptured early Friday morning in Alamo in Contra Costa County, sending water spilling out into the street for hours.

EBMUD on Twitter shortly after 5:30 a.m. initially reported the water main break on Hemme Avenue near Danville Boulevard.

The district said late Friday afternoon that crews would remain on site through the evening to make repairs to the line.

"This is a big one, folks! We appreciate your patience as we work as quickly and as safely as possible to restore water service," EBMUD wrote on Twitter while sharing a photo of the large hole in the roadway caused by the main break.
