TOPEKA, Kan (WIBW)-- A major waterline break near 10th and Vitt, west of Wanamaker created a temporary "geyser" in Topeka.

13 News spotted the water spout from the Huntoon Hill tower cam and provided live video of the spectacular water show.

Construction workers told 13 News that the line was supposed to have been moved and shut off before construction began.

Local residents say their water has been 'shut-off' three times in the last couple of days because of water line breaks.

Topeka Water crews were finally able to shut off the water supply about 8:30 a.m., but we have video so you can relive the experience.
