Crews work to repair a water main that floods Roscoe Boulevard near Tampa Avenue in Northridge on Friday, Aug. 17, 2012.
A break in a trunk line caused some street flooding Friday damaged two homes and a business in Northridge, city fire and utility officials said.
The street flooding happened about 1:30 p.m. in the 8300 block of Tampa Avenue, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.
"It is not affecting any customers, and there has been no significant street damage," Carol Tucker of the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power said about 2:45 p.m.
Minor water damage was reported at two homes and a local business in the area, utility officials said.
The 34-inch trunk line goes through main parts of the city, but does not serve any particular customer, Tucker said. Instead, there are connected feeder lines which deliver water to customers.
"They'll have to isolate the trunk line from the feeder pipes," Tucker said. "Customers might experience a change in water pressure, but once the trunk line is isolated, the pressure will return naturally."
Crews had shut down the line about 3 p.m. Friday, and water was being rerouted through other pipelines with water pressure returning to normal, utility officials said.
Eastbound lanes on a stretch of Roscoe Boulevard were blocked east of Tampa and were expected to remain that way until about 5:30 p.m.
No injuries were reported.
