A stretch of road in Canarsie was underwater after a pipe broke and flooded the street Monday afternoon.
The pipe feeding a fire hydrant on Preston Court near Ralph Avenue broke at about 2 pm on March 24, according to a Department of Environmental Protection spokeswoman.
Drivers on the avenue had to slosh through about six inches of water during their afternoon commutes, fire officials said.
Two warehouses and a car wash lost water service until 6:30 pm, said a Department of Environmental Protection spokesman.
The car wash could not be reached for comment.
The burst pipe dates only to 1995, and the city is still trying to determine why it failed.
There were no injuries reported, fire department sources said.
