HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

A water line in Hattiesburg has been repaired since it ruptured earlier Thursday, according to water department officials. Workers from the Hattiesburg Water Department quickly got to the area and repaired the break. 

There was no boil water notice from the Hattiesburg Water Department. 

The water line ruptured Thursday morning in central Hattiesburg.

Hattiesburg water department officials are currently on scene to repair the two inch water main that runs parallel to Highway 49 across from Forrest General Hospital.

The line was struck by an individual contractor making repairs to a sewer line.

City employees at the scene said the water line had been turned off.
