Water main break in El Sobrante, residents without water

EL SOBRANTE (KRON) — A water main is broken in El Sobrante Sunday morning, according to an East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) representative.

The break of the 12-inch, cast iron water main at 5075 Appian way was first reported at 8:04 a.m, the representative said.

EBMUD investigators are working to isolate the main to limit the number of people out of water.

43 customers do not have water access at this time.

No information was released regarding when water will be restored.

EBMUD reminds customers to have emergency water stored at home. They recommend keeping enough water for 1-2 gallons per person, per day, for at least 3-7 days.
