Work crews closed a portion of Donovan Avenue in south Bellingham Friday, Oct. 3 after a water main broke, flooding the street.
The street was closed between 24th and 27th streets and city officials said some residents in that neighborhood will lose water service, see reduced water pressure, or possibly have brown water coming through their pipes.
At about 2:30 p.m., crews responding to a report of water in the road discovered a 16-inch cast iron pipe, built in 1926, had burst on Donovan Avenue between 24th and 25th streets. Water pressure to the area was reduced immediately.
