Water Main Break Leaves Large Swath of Vallejo Residents Without Water

A broken water main in Vallejo left residents west of Interstate Highway 80 with little or no water pressure, according to city officials.

The 20-inch main reportedly broke Friday night between Sereno Drive and Tuolomne Street, parallel to Broadway Street. Repair crews were deployed immediately and have been on the scene ever since, according to city officials who said that the break is located under the railroad tracks.

Drinking water was made available Saturday to affected residents, according to the Vallejo Emergency Operations Center.

Water was provided from roughly 2:30 to 8 p.m. at fire station 23 at 900 Redwood St. and at fire station 28 at 970 Nimitz Ave. on Mare Island, center spokeswoman Elicia Ricciardi said.

Residents unable to leave their houses were able to ask for water delivery by calling the emergency center at (707) 648-5526, Ricciardi said. 

Vallejo officials said city water is safe to drink, but asked residents to avoid using water in the affected area until the break is repaired.

Ricciardi said the break should be repaired by 11:30 p.m. or sooner.

Hospitals in the area have sufficient water, city officials said.
