Water mains break in San Bruno, San Carlos

The San Bruno Water Department responded early this morning to a water main break at a condominium complex in the city, the second water main break in San Mateo County today.

The San Bruno incident was reported shortly before 4:10 a.m. at the complex located at 701 Shelter Creek Lane, a water department dispatcher said.

The water main break is near Building 6 at the complex, according to the dispatcher, who did not have any information about possible damage caused in the incident.

The incident caused minor flooding in the backyard of one home, and did not cause any injuries, he said.
