A water main break left Shelter Island temporarily without functional taps and toilets Wednesday.
The ruptured 12-inch-diameter concrete began flooding the roadway in the 2600 block of Shelter Island Drive about 1:30 p.m., according to the San Diego Public Utilities Department.
Utility crews had the overflow halted within 45 minutes, city spokesman Arian Collins said. No structural flooding was reported.
Officials hoped to have the 66-year-old main repaired and water service restored to the area by 8:30 p.m., Collins said. The street likely will reopen later in the night, he said.
