DWP, where are you?

Water was gushing from a deep hole in the middle of Morton Avenue in Echo Park this afternoon. Another one of those“major blow outs” popping DWP water mains across the city? No, not this one. A crew with a Gas Co. contractor broke the water main by accident while working to repair a leaky gas line, said an employee with SE Pipeline. He said he reported the water break to the DWP at about noon but was still waiting for help about 90 minutes later as water poured down the gutter. Perhaps DWP was busy issuing tickets for illegal lawn watering.
