Another Annandale neighborhood was temporarily without water Sunday night thanks to a water main break.

The break occurred around 9 p.m. Sunday on Murray Lane in the Columbia Pines neighborhood, according to Annandale resident Bob Kovacs.

Kovacs, who shot the above video shortly after the break occurred for his Annandale Arts YouTube channel, said a Fairfax Water employee on scene briefly shut the water off and turned it back on. A repair truck was reportedly headed to the scene within an hour.

Jeanne Bailey, spokesperson for Fairfax Water, said water was restored to the impacted residents at 2:35 a.m. and all repairs were finished around 7:30 a.m. Monday.

This is the third water main break to happen in Annandale this month. There was a water main break at Northern Virginia Community College's Annandale campus on Dec. 5, and just last week, a water main break caused a large sinkhole temporarily shut down Hummer Road.

You can add a forth water main break to the list. We have one on MacGregor Ct at the end of the street in the cul-de-sac. Fairfax Water is working on it as we speak and our water has been shut off. They are digging a hole about 4x6 feet wide and about 5 feet deep.
