A Davis public works employee drives up to tend to a water main rupture, one of two main line breaks Tuesday evening near Covell Boulevard and Highway 113, as water pushes sediment onto the roadway and sidewalk in front of 907 Kent Drive at 9:45 p.m. The breaks were caused by stray current corrosion, which comes from an external source, according to the city’s principal civil engineer, Dianna Jensen. Houses near Kent Drive were without water or had low water pressure from 8:30 p.m. to 3 a.m. Workers started repairs on Joshua Tree Street ¬†at 3 a.m. and finished at 6 a.m. Nearby homes experienced low pressure.
