POWDER SPRINGS, GA (CBS46) -

The city of Powder Springs' work crews got a call about the water main break on Old Lost Mountain Road at Shipp Road around 4 a.m. Thursday.

The break sent water into the roadway causing it to be closed for about 12 hours while all repairs were made.

Greg Ramsey with the city told CBS Atlanta News the break was in a 6-inch line which was fixed by 2 p.m., restoring water in the area.

Crews spent the next the couple of hours making repairs to the road which opened back up shortly after 4 p.m.

"Several hundred customers were without water and that number could be closer to 500," Ramsey said.
