About 200 customers were without water in Warner Robins until about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday as crews repaired damage to a pipe on Imperial Circle.
Utilities superintendent Montie Walters said workers notified him about 7 a.m. Tuesday that a vehicle hit a hydrant and water was escaping.
It actually damaged the pipe, too, and some of the fittings, so we couldnt just shut off the hydrant, Walters said.
People living and working around Elberta Road to Northside Drive, Houston Road and Green Street were without water for a few hours.
Walters said because the damage occurred in an older section of town, they could not isolate the outage to a smaller area.
Two crews worked as fast as they could to restore service, he said.
