Yesterday a water main broke under Sunset Boulevard. It was bad. A geyser shot 30 feet into the air, flooding the UCLA campus, including parking structures and Pauley Pavilion. A handful of stranded motorists and people in underground parking structures had to be rescued. Nearly four hours (and 8-10 million gallons of lost water) after the pipe burst, it was finally shut off.
The cause of the break? It’s quite simple, if you ask the man who called into ABC7 News posing as a Los Angeles Department of Water and Power spokesman by the (fantastic) name of Louis Slungpue: “Someone took a really large dump.”
