Sherman Oaks broken water main fixed

A water-main break in the 14300 block of Ventura Boulevard in Sherman Oaks sent water into the street on Saturday, Sept. 19, 2015.

Los Angeles Department of Water and Power crews finished repairs Sunday on a broken water main that closed a busy road and impacted businesses in Sherman Oaks.

LADWP announced the completion of repairs on their Twitter account around 8:30 a.m.


The busted 8-inch pipe in the 14300 block of Ventura Boulevard was reported at around 4 p.m. Saturday.

The rushing water damaged at least one business, FastFrame, but a total of 25 businesses were impacted when crews shut off the water to make repairs. Water service has been fully restored.

The water-main break forced the closure of Ventura Boulevard between Fulton and Sunnyslope avenues. All roads have since reopened.
