Update:

According to the Ramona Municipal Water District website, the repairs are completed and there are no water shutdowns.

Original story:

Crews are repairing a water main break at State Route 67 and Etcheverry Street that is affecting over 30 customers in that area, said one of the members working at the site.

According to the Ramona Municipal Water District website, an emergency mainline shutdown went into effect at 9 p.m. Thursday and will continue until repairs are made. The interruption in service affects 34 meters and 11 fire hydrants on Route 67, from Susie Way to Rotanzi Street, and all of Rancho Maria Lane and Outback Place.

Brian Wilson with TC Construction said the company had been called for the emergency repair and worked through the night.

“We had a real quick mobilization last night,” he said.

Wilson said they were replacing a section of the pipe that had rusted out. Once the pipe is repaired, he said they would repave the approximately 15-foot long section along Route 67 where the crews had dug to reach the water main.
