Video: Ellenwood water main break fixed

Water main break on Panthersville Road in Southwestern DeKalb County.

DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. -- A water main break on Panthersville Road has been repaired in time for Monday's morning commute.

Crews worked overnight to fix the break near River Road.

Several hundred customers lost water service in the nearby Penders Ridge subdivision and beyond. At least one resident's garage was flooded.

Another break occured on the same water line, several hundred feet away, late Friday afternoon.

DeKalb County officials said the pipes in the area are about 50 years old, which may explain the breaks.
