Water Main Break Shuts Down Service in Old Town Goleta

A water main break disrupted service for residents and businesses around the 5700 block of Hollister Avenue in Old Town Goleta on Saturday night, authorities said.

Valerie Kushnerov, public information officer for the City of Goleta, said the outage was reported just after 7 p.m. at 5757 Hollister Ave. in front of Santa Cruz Market.

Crews from the Goleta Water District were on the scene but there was no immediate information on the extent of the outage or when service would be restored.

Kushnerov said the neighborhood along Hollister between Kinman and Tecolote avenues appeared to be affected. The area includes a number of apartment buildings.

Santa Barbara County firefighters and sheriff's deputies responded to the scene, and Kushnerov said traffic control is now in place in the area. Motorists are advised to use caution.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
