Two pipes rupture in Humboldt leaving some without water today

Some residents in Humboldt County may have experienced a water outage today. Authorities said that two pipes burst over the night.

The Humboldt Bay Municipal Water District said that a leak was found in a Fairhaven pipe around 3 a.m. near the Lindstrom Avenue and Bendixon Street. Officials said that customers in that area shouldn’t have been affected.

A second rupture was found in Eureka’s main distribution line. Some residents in the immediate area did experience an outage.  Crews were working at Wabash and C Street for most of the morning and afternoon trying to seal the line. It’s unsure what caused that pipe to burst.
