Hundreds of employees were unable to work today at two California Department of Justice buildings in downtown Sacramento because of a broken water main, officials said.

Eight hundred workers were affected, an undetermined number of whom are expected to work from their homes or other offices, spokeswoman Becca MacLaren said.

The two DOJ buildings -- including the agency's Sacramento headquarters -- are not flooded but lack running water because of the broken pipe, which was discovered last night and is located in an alley nearby, she said.

The DOJ has no estimate on when the buildings will reopen.
