A water pipe at the Eggs n’ Things parking lot next to the Paseo Club broke Saturday, officials said.

Los Angeles County firefighters responded to the report of a broken water main at the W-10 water station in Valencia. Upon arrival firefighters noted that chlorine was present in the water and called for an initial response from hazmat, according to Fire Supervisor Bernard Peters.

Hazmat was later canceled after firefighters determined that the chemicals in the water would be non-hazardous to the public and they could shut off the water themselves.

The break was later determined to not be a break in the main but rather a broken PVC pipe that caused the leak, according to Lt. Andrew Dahring with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.

Technicians with Santa Clarita Water arrived later to fix the break, noting it was a PVC break.

Water for the local businesses was not affected after firefighters tested the water at the Subway restaurant next to the station.
