Crews repaired a water main break on Dutch Colony Drive Tuesday morning.

The eight inch break happened around 2 a.m. and police left the scene about an hour later. At one point, water was shooting at least 40 feet into the air. Waterworks crews remained on the scene to fix the break.

It's unclear what caused the break, but about 25 customers were left without water. Water service has since been restored.
