VALLEJO —

Vallejo has activated the Emergency Operation Center in response to a 20 inch main break.

The break is between Sereno Drive and Tuolumne Street parallel to Broadway Street. Crews are on-site working on the repair.

Residents in the area may be experiencing little or no water pressure.

The primary impact on residents is believed to be west of Highway 80 and Mare Island.

Right now, there is no time frame for when water will be restored.

Although the water is safe to drink, residents are instructed to not use the water in order to keep positive pressure on the line.

Drinking water has been ordered and will be available to residents in this area. Locations will be available later.

The Vallejo Sanitation and Flood Control District and the City are working together to clear storm drains and direct water flowing from the main break down the drains.

Vallejo Fire has also brought out their portable water supply system used to provide suppression capabilities when city water sources are unavailable.
