Written by on July 2, 2020

L A County waterworks officials are still fixing a leak in a big water pipe on P C H at Latigo Shores.

A 12 inch pipeline that crosses PCH has sprung a leak.

Workers have closed one lane in each direction on the highway.

Customers are being served by a temporary pipe … delivering lower pressure water to keep people in water.

Yesterday … the area was trenched and the workers ran a camera through it … to  try to find it the leak.

They discovered …. they need a larger shoring box.

That was trucked in this morning.

The crews hope to start repair on pipe this afternoon.

Leak should be fixed by tonight.

The county has run out a temporary bypass pipe to keep everyone in water.

But fire hydrants are turned off … the fire department knows they will have to bring in extra pumpers if there is a fire today.
