A break in a 12-inch water main on Oakland Avenue between Sunnyside and Olive avenues Sunday night closed the street and brought out heavy equipment and repair crews. Workers were still on the scene at midnight.
A sewer line reportedly also needed repair because of its close proximity to the broken water main.
Maintenance Supervisor Dave Frankel and off-duty maintenance workers from Piedmont's Public Works Department (including Angelo Espinosa) were among those reponding.
Thank you to Piedmont resident Rick Schiller for photos and on-the-spot information.
