Main Line Water Break in Monrovia


There has been a main line water break on California at Duarte Rd. Some neighborhoods are experiencing low to zero water pressure due to this break. Currently, most calls are coming in south of Huntington between Magnolia and Shamrock.  Crews are responding and assessing the situation. We do not have an estimated time of when water will be restored.  We will update you on the situation as information becomes available.
