Sunset Boulevard In Holmby Hills Remains Closed After Water Main Rupture:

A stretch of Sunset Boulevard in Holmby Hills remained closed today after a 12-inch cast-iron water main ruptured, causing flooding and cutting service to about 12 residents, a Los Angeles Department of Water and Power spokeswoman said.

Crews have repaired and re-pressurized the 12-inch main and restored service to the 12 affected customers, said Kim Hughes.

Elsewhere, one westbound and two eastbound lanes of Sunset Boulevard are open to traffic in West Hollywood, where there was a water main break Friday.

A new break was reported today at 3:30 a.m. at Eighth and Flower streets downtown, Huges said. Water was shut off at 4:15 a.m. to the 4-inch main. How many customers are affected and when repairs might be complete was not immediately determined.

The Holmby Hills break was reported some time after noon Sunday in the 10200 block of West Sunset Boulevard, near Charing Cross Road, Hughes said. The water was shut off and crews began excavating the street to expose the broken pipe, which was installed in 1969, according to the DWP.

Sunset will reopen in both directions between Charing Cross Road and Mapleton Drive after Department of Public Works crews finish street repairs, Hughes said. Reports from the scene suggested the operation could take another couple of days or so.

The break happened less than a day after a stretch of Sunset Boulevard reopened in West Hollywood following a water main break on the busy thoroughfare near Olive Drive on Friday.

The break was on a different line than the 36-inch steel riveted trunk line that ruptured Friday, Hughes said.
