CONYERS — Repairs to a water main break are under way at the intersection of Ga. Highway 138 and Sigman Road.
As a result, Rockdale Water Resources (RWR) is temporarily shutting off water service Friday afternoon in Conyers to surrounding customers in a certain radius of the main break.
Robo-calls were made using targeted ZIP code information to alert those affected.
Businesses and residences on Sigman Road ranging west to Rockbridge Road and east to Gees Mill Road, and on Highway 138 going north to Tatum Road and south to Interstate 20 are affected.
The water main broke around 9 a.m. on Friday during construction work. Workers for the Georgia Department of Transportation were doing some underground drilling when it appears they bored into a water main.
RWR officials are not yet sure when repairs will be complete.
Conyers police are diverting traffic around the incident, which is estimated to impact the area the remainder of the evening.
