RICHARDSON (1080 KRLD) - Crews have fixed that huge water main break in Richardaon that was affecting thousands of homes. 

The main was finally fixed Monday, and for the most part watering restrictions have been lifted, but people are being asked to avoid using their outdoor watering systems until 6:00 p.m. tonight.

Officials say the break forced watering restrictions in Richardson and 5 other cities including Plano, Murphy, Sachse, Wylie and Garland.

Crews had been working since last Thursday to fix the water main break along the 4500 block of Crystal Mountain Drive in Richardson.

Those repairs were completed yesterday.
