A water main broke about 4 a.m. Sunday near the View Pointe Drive area of New Franklin Road at South Beach Creek Bridge, causing some homes to lose water, LaGrange Utilities Director Patrick Bowie said.
“It was a big mess because it was a 12-inch duct main, but it was a pretty rural area so not many people were affected,” he said.
Three homes on View Pointe Drive were without water while several residents in the Wares Cross Road area reported low water pressure. The main was repaired within four hours, utilities officials said, and one southbound lane was shut down during the repair.
Officials attributed the break to heavy rain, which caused the pipe to erode and collapse.
