Busted pipe caused flooding requiring emergency repairs

The parking lot of a San Francisco high school was soaked with water last month after a 6-inch pipe burst flooding the area and nearby streets.

The pipe broke at Thurgood Marshall High School in the Bayview neighborhood Tuesday, Nov. 30.

According to San Francisco Unified School District documents, the busted pipe which runs adjacent to the main entrance driveway, “flooded the adjacent areas and the nearby street.”

Because of the break, the water that feeds the pipe had to be shut off, ultimately affecting the school functions. The line is a “major water feeder to the school.”

Repairs were made immediately, according to district officials, for an estimated $10,000. The district’s Board of Education will vote to approve this use of funds and declare the repair an emergency at its regular meeting Tuesday evening.
