Some 75 homes were without water for much of Friday after an 80-year water pipe busted under a street in South Los Angeles.
DWP crews expected to have the line repaired by Friday evening. A water main broke and flooded a residential intersection after 5 a.m. at 59th and Hoover streets.
There was no reports of property damage, but the DWP is investigating.
The intersection was closed until crews can determine the extent of the damage.
