There is no boil water advisory in effect, and Decatur Schools, previously without water, are open Friday, City Schools of Decatur Superintendent David Dude said on Facebook.
Crews told Channel 2 that during the leak the affected area had water but the pressure was weak.
Gallons of water seeped from underground and gushed down Parkhill Drive in Decatur, with water running for more than seven hours before crews found the break, one resident said.
“It looks like a dam had broke down the street,” neighbor Elizabeth Grove told Channel 2.
Crews are still working to replacing the broken main.
The break caused a sinkhole in Decatur.
