While walking along the Embarcadero at 3 p.m. on Monday, January 31, I noticed concrete bubbling up from a hole in the road surface and into the storm drain.

I turned around and noticed it was pouring into the bay. A worker for Burwell Pipeline (a city-hired contractor) told me they were relining pipes and there was apparently a bad joint, resulting in the concrete rising to the surface. Harbor Police were called.

This doesn't even meet the 100 word minimum. And it reads like half the story has been told. God Robert!

Yes-did they fix it? I am going to bet no.

Reminds me of the time I called the City of SD to complain about my street's lack of street lights and they PROMISED me one would go in within 6 months-after 9 months came and went I called them back to see what the hold up was and they claimed they had "run out of money" (this was during the boom years of the Repub convention and massive pension increases). I asked why they could have not foreseen that and why no one informed me the job had been cancelled-no reply.
