A resident sent us these photos of a water main rupture on Wednesday which shot a geyser of water onto a Richmond street that had been paved just eight hours earlier.
The water main burst about 6 p.m. near S45th Street and Sycamore Avenue. A crew from the East Bay Municipal Utility District responded and worked until 11 p.m. to restore water to customers, the resident said.
“The water is back now,” the resident told us. “The really frustrating part of all this is they JUST paved the road that morning! It had been awful for years, and now it’s all torn up again!”
Check back for updates on possible causes for the water main break.
Below are photos of minor flooding along with photos of the pavement work from earlier in the day.
