Pipe break that flooded UCLA dumps 20M gallons

By From page B4 | July 31, 2014

LOS ANGELES — Authorities say a pipe break that flooded UCLA’s famed Pauley Pavilion has now released 20 million gallons of water and continues to gush.

Jim McDaniel of the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power says the century-old pipe that burst on Sunset Boulevard is releasing about 1,000 gallons of water a minute despite shutdown efforts.

That’s still dramatically down from Tuesday, when the 30-inch main fractured and sent water cascading into UCLA’s sports pavilion and parking structures.

McDaniel says crews are still working to stop or plug the leak.
