A busy section of Connecticut Avenue was flooded with water in Northwest D.C. Saturday afternoon when a 12-inch water main broke near the Van Ness Street intersection.
DC Water said emergency crews are at the scene near the University of the District of Columbia campus.
At 4:39 p.m., DC Water tweeted that full restoration of water services should take 8-10 hours.
Currently, the campus and several businesses on Connecticut Avenue are without water.
"Unfortunately, when temperatures drop, our aging infrastructure is prone to water main breaks," DC Water said in a tweet about the breakage.
The break is unrelated to another water main break that has put parts of Northwest D.C. and Arlington, Virginia, under a boil water advisory this weekend.
