Vehicle strikes fire hydrant, disrupts water service in San Mateo
July 14, 2014, 05:00 AM Bay City News Service

Water service was restored after being briefly interrupted after a vehicle crashed into a fire hydrant causing water to pour onto a residential street in San Mateo Saturday night, according to the San Mateo County Office of Emergency Services.

Following the crash, water from the fire hydrant was reported leaking into the roadway in the 1600 block of Bayridge Way near the College of San Mateo campus.

At about 8:40 p.m., the county’s Office of Emergency Services reported that water service to homes in the area would be interrupted while crews worked to repair the burst fire hydrant.

Residences located within a quarter mile of the hydrant were initially expected to be without water service until 1 or 2 a.m. on Sunday, but crews were able to finish repairs early.

At 9:35 p.m. Saturday, the county’s Office of Emergency Services reported that water service was fully restored to the neighborhood.

The California Water Service Company officials said residents in the area might see temporary discoloration in their tap water, but that the discoloration is to be expected.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
