Fallbrook Public Utility District crews replaced a deteriorated underground water line that failed Friday night, Nov. 19, sending water into the streets.

Several neighborhoods from North Stage Coach to Santa Margarita Road and all the homes in between, including Hillcrest Lane and Knoll Park Lane were affected.

The water was shut down due to broken underground water pipes, according to FPUD. The homes in the area that weren't without water may have experienced lower water pressure. The FPUD crews dug up the street, replaced a 12 inch water pipe and two other 8 inch water pipes and replaced the asphalt in less than 24 hours.
