Residents of the area of Pierce Road and Ringwood Avenue in Menlo Park have had their water service restored following a water main break early Friday morning (Jan. 3).
The Menlo Park Police Department said that the main break, reported at 3:22 a.m. Friday, caused the water shutoff in the area of Pierce Road between Alpine Avenue and Menlo Oaks Drive.
According to Nikki Nagaya, Menlo Park's interim public works director, the break occurred when a contractor was excavating and hit the line.
Nagaya said she didn't know how many households were affected, but noted that the crews working on the repairs made bottled water available to those affected.
The water department fully restored service Friday evening, according to a Menlo Park police email sent out shortly after 7:30 p.m. that day.
