CONYERS – A 12-inch water main break in South Rockdale disrupted water service for residents for about four hours Sunday and led to a boil water advisory.

Rockdale Water Resources field crews restored water services to South Rockdale citizens in about four hours after a water main break at Ga. Highway 138 and East Fairview Road on Jan. 17.

A 48-hour boil water advisory was issued for areas south of Ga. Highway 138 and Ga. Highway 212 beginning Sunday at 5:15 p.m. The water main break mainly affected residents living near Ga. Highway 138 at South River Bridge and north of East Fairview Road in the Lorraine Park Trail Head area. Crews restored service by 7:41 p.m. Sunday. The boil water advisory was set to remain in effect until Tuesday, Jan. 19 at 6 p.m.
