(KSL News) -- Some Riverton residents suffered through a dry night, but their water is flowing again today.

More than 200 homes were without water or experienced very low pressure.

Around 7:30 a water main broke near 126th South and 22nd West, shooting water 10 feet into the air. Riverton city officials say road construction caused a weakened pipe to crack.

Crews worked through the night and by 6:30 this morning, everyone had their water back.
