Two water main breaks occurred in the Walnut Creek area early Saturday morning, according to the East Bay Municipal Utility District.

The first occurred in unincorporated Contra Costa County, where a 6-inch cast iron main pipe burst just outside of the Walnut Creek city limits at 1:15 a.m. today, according to EBMUD spokeswoman Tracie Morales.

Forty-three customers are affected by that break, Morales said.

The second occurred within the city limits near the intersection of Walnut Boulevard and Ygnacio Valley Road and was reported at 2:46 a.m. 

Morales said both water main breaks will be repaired today and are both currently under investigation.
