7 homes flooded in S.F. after water main break 

A water main break in Visitacion Valley flooded seven homes before it was repaired, according to the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission.

The break in a 6-inch main on Brussels Street near Ward Street was reported about 10 p.m. Friday, SFPUC spokesman Charles Sheehan said. Water service was turned off during repairs and restored about 7 a.m. Saturday when the repair was completed, Sheehan said.

The main that broke dates back to 1934, and Sheehan said age was the cause of the rupture.

The break affected seven houses in the area. Water entered a single room in three of the homes and entered the garages and backyards of the others, Sheehan said.

City crews were sent out to assist in cleanup efforts, Sheehan said.

No residents were displaced and there was no structural or foundation damage to any building.

Affected residents will receive assistance from The City and Brussels Street will be repaved, Sheehan said.
