A broken water main left about 100 Monterey customers without water for several hours on Tuesday and damaged the roadway, fire and water officials said.
Firefighters were called to the scene at Van Buren and Jackson streets just after 5 p.m., said Duty Chief Stewart Roth. He said gushing water lifted the roadway, created small sinkholes and led to closure of Van Buren between West Franklin and Scott streets.
