A water main break that left a Columbia County school and nearby neighborhood dry for much of the day has been repaired and water service restored.
A PVC water line on Evans-to-Locks Road feeding into The Abbeys neighborhood ruptured this morning, said Columbia County Water Utility Operations Manager Mark Inglett.
To repair the line, crews had had to shut off water to Stevens Creek Elementary and to The Abbeys, Inglett said.
“We had to isolate a larger area in order to focus on the feed line going into The Abbeys,” he said.
Work crews replaced the section of line and restored water service to the area about 3:30 p.m., Inglett said.
