Service restored after large water main break in Berkeley neighborhood

Water was restored to people in the area of 45th and Perry Monday night after a large water main break Sunday morning.

DENVER — Denver Water said service has been restored to residents in the Berkeley neighborhood after a large water main break there Sunday. 

A 24-inch pipe broke Sunday morning near 45th Avenue and Perry Street, which caused flooding in the neighborhood, said Travis Thompson, a spokesperson with Denver Water. By 11:20 a.m. Sunday, water was shut off to the area, Denver Water said.

On Monday, crews were working to repair the pipe. Denver Water said just after 9 p.m. Monday that water has been restored. The road will remain closed through at least Thursday morning as crews continue to work in the area, Denver Water said.

Denver Water asked people to avoid the area as crews worked on repairing the main and restoring water.

Thompson said restoration crews will work with homeowners to see what kind of water damage they may have.
