San Juan Bautista Public Works stops water line break

Break occurred on Lasuen Drive during backfilling process.

Neighborhoods are not expected to suffer any effects after a water line break occurred May 28 on Lasuen Drive in San Juan Bautista.

The city took to social media to inform residents of the leak around 1 p.m.

“As of Tuesday afternoon, the City is working to repair a major water line break that may impact water pressure in your neighborhood,” the Facebook post read. It also urged residents to conserve water to minimize the impact on the water pressure in neighborhoods.

Public Works supervisor Nicholas Bryan told BenitoLink the water line broke during a backfilling process in the area. The leak was stopped around 2:36 p.m. after public works employees installed a valve, he said.

Bryan said because the break occurred on the outskirts of town, no water lines were closed during the repair process.
