Water returns to Lithonia neighborhood after water main break

Updated:

LITHONIA, Ga. - Crews have worked non-stop to repair a water main break that flooded a DeKalb County intersection.

Since Monday afternoon, Channel 2 Action News has been following the repair work along Covington Highway at Phillips Road.

Roger Coley said he was on his way to work Monday morning and he noticed a pool of water on the street.

"Water just coming out of the ground and I said, 'Oh, we got a busted water main,'" Coley said.

Workers located the break, but had to shut off water to homes and businesses to fix it.

Dozens of homes in a Lithonia neighborhood lost water for 12 hours, but relief came overnight for customers with dry faucets.

The roads have been reopened, but crews are expected to return Tuesday afternoon to put down new asphault.
