ANNA (CBSDFW.COM) – City crews in Anna worked overnight to repair a water main break and restore water service to its 9,500 residents.

The water has been off since Wednesday around 5:15 p.m, when a crew contracted by the city broke a water line at west White Street and South Powell Parkway. The water line was to be moved to make room for a road expansion project.

The city hopes to complete the repair on Thursday morning. Once water service resumes, a water boil order will be in place until further notice.

The city manager says it’ll take as long as 48 hours to get full pressure back for everyone.

Officials have been distributing bottled water to residents since Wednesday evening.

The water main break is the third such break this week in north Texas. On Tuesday night, a hole in a water main sent a high pressure geyser rocketing toward a Fort Worth home.  A similar incident damaged several homes in northwest Dallas on Monday.
