ANDERSON, S.C. - A broken water line flooded South Main Street near Pearman Dairy Road in Anderson Friday morning causing a sheet of ice to cover the roadway.

Workers from Homeland Park Water and Sewer say the pipe ruptured around 5 a.m.  The pipe was repaired by 12:30 p.m.

General Manager David Hall tells us crews responded to the scene immediately after someone reported water on the road.

Hall said crews were able to repair the pipe "under pressure" and patch it up so it did not need to be replaced.

Hall said this cost about $1500 to pay workers overtime and for some lost water.

The company says the cause of the water main break is weather-related. The surge of water onto the road froze quickly in Friday's temperatures. 

The National Weather Service at GSP International reported a record-tying low temperature for this date overnight of nine degrees, matching the mark set in 1963.

Customers were not left without water.  Officials say no residents or businesses have been impacted.
