100,000 gallons of water spilled in Atascadero

A pipeline broke in Atascadero Saturday morning spewing about 100,000 gallons of water from the Lake Nacimiento water line.

Workers determined a valve that manages air bubbles in the line broke shortly after 8 a.m. sending water into the air on Rocky Canyon Road near Halcon Road. In less then an hour, San Luis Obispo County Public Works crews were able to stop the leak.
