SANDY SPRINGS, GA (CBS46) -

Metro Atlanta is in the middle of a Level 2 drought, but a Sandy Springs family's front yard has been drenched for days.

A water main break unleashed hundreds of thousands of gallons of water. Contractors installing fiber optics for AT&T hit the line to a fire hydrant.

An Atlanta Watershed crew responded to the break, but because initially it was not a large one, workers put it on a waiting list. When the leak turned into a geyser, Better Call Harry got Atlanta Watershed to come back out and cap it.
