A water main break caused a water outage for about 2,000 Buckhead residents and part of Phipps Plaza on Jan. 4, the Department of Watershed Management said in an advisory.

The break caused a temporary water outage for five highrise buildings, one apartment complex and one subdivision. Ten fire hydrants are also affected, the department said. Water service was later restored at around 3 p.m. on Jan. 4, according to the department.

Some lanes were closed to repair the water main. The issue is at 769 Longleaf Dr. between Wieuca Road and Lenox Road, the department said.

Sand and salt was distributed over the icy area, and motorists were urged to use caution and to avoid the area if possible, according to the department.

The cause of the break was not released.
