Water Main Break Shuts Down Streets in National City

The water is back on now for the more than 60 businesses that were without water after a water main break in National City. It all started around 6 a.m. Thursday, when residents saw water running down West 16th Street and Coolidge Avenue. Water could be seen flooding several yards, but there was no damage to any property, just an inconvenience with no water for morning commuters. The Sweetwater Authority closed the affected area and forced drivers to find a way around the mess, while crews continued to fix the pipe and figure out what caused it to break.
