Crews worked through the day Monday to repair a broken water main that flooded the intersection of Alvarado and 7th streets near MacArthur Park.

The streets began filling with water about 8:45 a.m. after a 12-inch pipe broke, said Department of Water and Power spokeswoman Stephanie Interiano. The agency shut off the water in the immediate area, and officials said they hoped to have service restored and the flooding cleared by late Monday.
