Emergency repairs under way for water break in Fauntleroy

Seattle Public Utilities crews are at 47th SW and Brace Point Drive right now, making emergency repairs after a water-line break. We contacted SPU and went to the scene for a look after two nearby residents contacted us wondering about a sudden drop in water pressure. The crew at the scene told us they hope to be done in half an hour or so. This could be affecting water pressure as far north as Willow and Fauntleroy, SPU says.

P.S. If you get discolored water because of, or after, this – here’s the SPU advice on that.

    Haven’t went to look but isn’t this the same water line break that had to be repaired around Thanksgiving?

    Same general area, but eventually new pipe connects to old pipe in every repair.

Sorry, comment time is over.
