Water service disrupted in North Beach area

Water service to some homes and businesses in San Francisco's North Beach and Telegraph Hill neighborhoods has been disrupted by a possible water main break this afternoon.

San Francisco Public Utilities Commission spokesman Tony Winnicker said it appears a contractor may have struck and ruptured a water main near Mason and Filbert streets in North Beach.

Winnicker was on his way to that neighborhood at 1:45 p.m. to get more information. He had heard residents were experiencing problems including low water pressure and that some restaurants were affected.
