Water main break sends water gushing into the air

Water main break on Calverda Dr.

WASHINGTON TWP., Ohio (WDTN) – Several homes on Calverda Dr. may experience reduced water pressure as the result of a water main break.

Water crews were called around 3 a.m. Tuesday. When they arrived, they found water shooting several feet into the air.

Workers are calling it a winter water main break in the summer. They say a hole in the top of a pipe could be to blame.

After shutting the water off, crews put up cones around the area. They will return in the morning to finish repairs.
