A six-inch water main ruptured Tuesday in the Leimert Park area of Los Angeles, leaving nearly two dozen Department of Water and Power customers with low water pressure, a DWP spokeswoman said.The break was reported at about 3:30 am near 43rd Place and 8th Avenue.

DWP officials say a repair crew "pinched the main" to reduce run-off. No homes or businesses were left without water. Crews were working to restore full water pressure to the affected homes.

There were no street closures due to the broken main.
