2nd Hanahan water line break in 2 days was "like a river," warming weather likely to blame

Crews responded to a water main break Thursday morning in North Charleston.
Dispatchers with the Charleston County Consolidated 911 Center tell us the break happened around 3:50 a.m. on Remount Road near Yeamans Hall Road.
We’re told the water was several inches deep for at least 200 yards.
The intersection was reopened around 6:00 a.m.
Heavy equipment was brought in around 6:45 a.m. Due to the water main break in the area, there is no water service at Matilda F. Dunston Primary School at this time, Charleston County School District officials say.
They say ground temperatures are much warmer than water in the pipes.
More water main breaks could happen, according to Charleston Water System.
The burst pipe on Remount Road was installed in 1926 , according to officials with Charleston Water Systems.
Thursday’s work marked the second time in as many days crews have been recalled to repair a water main break at Yeamans Hall and Remount roads.
