1:32 AM: Police are being summoned to help direct traffic near Avalon/Genesee because of a water break. You’ll want to avoid that area for a while. No details on the cause or extent of the break; if you’re experiencing water trouble, be sure to notify SPU at 206-386-1800.
1:54 AM: Thanks for the video – above, emailed by Michael; below, from a texter, showing water flowing down Genesee from Avalon:
Michael says the break appears to have originated right in front of the Marq Apartments at 3261 SW Avalon Way.
9:04 AM: As noted by commenters, this isn’t fixed yet. Thanks for the photos – this one is from Anthony:
We just talked with Seattle Public Utilities spokesperson Sabrina Register. She says they don’t have an estimate yet for how much longer it will take to fix; 43 customers are affected (but that counts an entire apartment building as one “customer”). The broken line is an 8″ pipe; cause, not yet officially known – though that entire stretch is part of the big SDOT project, overnight work was not scheduled.
2:20 PM: After 13 hours, some in the area are reporting their water’s back on.
