Water main break sends water shooting 50 feet into the air

Water shoots 50 feet into the air in Davidson

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - A water main break left several without water in a residential area in Davidson Tuesday morning.

The break happened in the early morning hours off Davidson Gateway Drive.

Charlotte Water crews were able to shut off the water after at least an hour.

At one point, our crew on scene estimated the water was shooting at least 50 feet into the air, going over the roofs of homes and trees.

We do know some neighbors are without water because of all of this. Charlotte Water tells us it may be a couple of hours before this is all fixed.

We will continue to follow this and update you when we know more.
