Water Main Break Update – 12:00 p.m.

Van Nuys Blvd. & Sherman Way

LOS ANGELES — The water main break at the intersection of Van Nuys Blvd. and Sherman Way in the Van Nuys area of the San Fernando Valley occurred at approximately 10:42 a.m.  LADWP crews are on the scene and working to shut off the water main.  Water flow has diminished significantly.

The ruptured pipe is a 54-inch ductile iron pipe.  A “purple pipe,” the pipe is used to convey recycled water used for irrigation and industrial purposes.

This rupture is not expected to interrupt regular water service to any LADWP customers.

Additional information will be posted at www.ladwpnews.com as it becomes available.
