A huge amount of water flowing down APS for about 15 minutes now. Saw a fire truck and a city public works truck pass about 5 minutes ago. Water is brown in color.

Watermain replacement jobs are going on all over the city by lash construction who was the low bid for the job

And if it was a water main the City will ONLY repair that one spot. COASTWATCH is totally correct, the crumbling infrastructure is being ignored and minimally patched up as the tax dollars subsidize pensions and subsidized housing. OR repairing all the curbs on Mission Street instead of the potholes.

Muddy water like that is typically a sign of a busted water main.

Decades ago I was driving up APS late one night. There was a noticeable amount of water flowing down the road. I stopped at the source, drove up the driveway and knocked on the front door to the house. The man inside had no clue that his water was coursing down the street. He thanked me and thanked me. Sometimes it pays to ask "Did you know your water is running down the street?"

Homeowners in that area use a lot of water when they have their people wash so many vehicles on a Sunday getting ready for the new week. Have you ever noticed how much it takes to wash a Suburban and a fleet of Range Rovers?

Obviously someone was washing their car with brown water

Most likely a water main break heard there was one somewheres.

Water stopped flowing just after 3:30PM. Any idea as to what caused this?

@154.. Really? what caused this...? It's called a crumbling infrastructure. Your tax money goes to Santa Barbara Housing Authority's subsidized housing instead of rebuilding water and sewer mains that are more than 100 yrs old.
