Make that 34 pipe blowouts

September 21, 2009|Shelby Grad

The latest in a string of water main blowouts occurred Sunday morning in Venice, causing a sinkhole on Lincoln Boulevard.

Since Sept. 1, there have been 34 major blowouts in L.A.'s water system, in which streets have flooded and pavement has buckled.

Another occurred Friday afternoon on Myra Avenue in Silver Lake. By contrast, the city had only 21 such ruptures in all of September 2008, 17 in September 2007 and 13 in September 2006.
