A major waterline break near 10th and Vitt, west of Wanamaker created a temporary "geyser" in Topeka.
A news crew spotted the water spout creating a spectacular water show, with water shooting about 100 feet into the air.
Construction workers say 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.
