UPDATE: Fauntleroy water break, mudslide

9:25 AM: If you’re driving in Fauntleroy, be aware of this slide on Fauntleroy Place at Cloverdale (45th headed north becomes this street – here’s a map):


Thanks to Christopher Bell for the photo. We’re checking with Seattle Public Utilities about the report that this is the result of a water-main break.

11:10 AM UPDATE: From SPU’s Ingrid Goodwin: “SPU crews responded this morning to a break in a 1-inch plastic water service as well as a mud slide on Fauntleroy Place. A couple of truckloads of material slid from a green belt area into the roadway. SPU landslide engineers are performing a site evaluation of the hillside and water crews are working on the cleanup and repair. Water is back on for customers who were impacted.”

    Wonder if trees have been cut down in the green belt above?

      If I added the other photo sent, it more clearly shows the situation is in the bank by the road, which isn’t really a greenbelt.

    I took the photo. The slide was caused by a broken water line. There’s a house above and no greenbelt.

Sorry, comment time is over.
