SALINAS, Calif. - About 350 customers have been asked to boil their water following a water main break in the Las Palmas neighborhood of Monterey County.
A California Water Service representative tells KION news that the water main broke about 3:00am Monday morning.
When crews excavated the water main they discovered additional pipes laying on top of the main as well as additional backfill that may have contributed to the break.
Bottled water is being handed out at the community pool in the Las Palmas neighborhood. The Cal Water Services spokesman says the boil water alert is expected to be lifted by Tuesday morning.
