BERKELEY (CBS SF) — Crews finished repairs early Tuesday morning to a ruptured water main in Berkeley, an East Bay Municipal Utility District spokeswoman said.

The 6-inch water main burst near Bancroft Way and Fulton Street at around 4:50 p.m. Monday afternoon, EBMUD spokeswoman Andrea Pook said.

Water was shut off to about 10 commercial customers around 6 p.m. Service was returned to customers by midnight. Crews were on the scene until 2 a.m. to repair the damage, Pook said.

The cause of the break has yet to be determined, but crews will be returning Tuesday to finish clean up and do work on the road, Pook said.

The streets where water rushed through Monday evening are now open, the spokeswoman said.
