Water main breaks are unpredictable and can happen for a variety of reasons:

If you see a water main break (water coming up through grass, road or sidewalk), contact 311 and a Water Services crew will be dispatched.
Under normal circumstances, water main breaks are repaired and water is back on within 48 hours. We prioritize breaks based on factors such as the risk of property damage, impact to critical facilities (like hospitals or schools) and number of customers that are out of water.
If your water is off and you have not been notified yet, it may be due to a short-term break in your area, repairs within your building, a break outside regular hours, or a frozen water line.
