CONYERS, Ga. -- A leak in a water main line that broke Friday in Rockdale County has been repaired.

And as of Tuesday evening residents no longer have to boil water before using it.

The water main around the intersection of Highway 138 and Sigman Road broke on Friday morning during construction-related underground drilling by workers for the Georgia Department of Transportation.

Rockdale County director of community affairs Tonya Parker said the break likely happened when the line was struck while crews were drilling.

Highway 138 is also open again to traffic now.
