CENTENNIAL, Colo. — Service has been restored to customers after what South Metro Fire Rescue called a "significant" water main break Sunday night in Centennial.

Repairs to the 16-inch pipe were completed by 4 a.m. Monday in the area of 4211 Links Parkway, according to Denver Water.

Travis Thompson with Denver Water said crews were expected to remain in the area Monday morning to remove debris and finish paving the damaged road. Thompson said the road could be opened sometime before noon.

According to South Metro, the break was reported about 7:30 p.m. Sunday. Video tweeted by South Metro showed a large amount of water shooting several yards into the air from a large hole in the road.

No one was hurt, South Metro said, but a large amount of water and debris was flowing through the area. Water to the 16-inch pipe was shut off.

The cause of the break was unknown. Denver Water said crews were working through the night to repair the pipe and restore service to the 17 affected customers.
