LOS ANGELES, Calif., Oct. 2, 2002 -- The rupture of a major water trunk line in the Los Angeles area Thursday led officials to issue a boil water recommendation.

The water main ruptured early Thursday morning, prompting the California Department of Health Services in conjunction with the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power to advise nearby residents to use boiled water or bottled water for drinking or cooking.

The affected area includes the Pacoima/Arleta area bounded to the north by Paxton Street, to the south by Brandford Street, to the west by Canterbury Avenue, and to the east by San Fernando Road.

The advisory was issued as a precaution because of the loss of water in the affected area due to the rupture of a large water trunk line.

LADWP said it had no indication of any problems in the distribution system but have increased surveillance as a precautionary measure.
