BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — A massive jet of water caused by a broken water main shot into the air Thursday in southwest Bakersfield.
The water soared upwards of 30 feet by the intersection of Mountain Ridge Drive and Taft Highway. A 17 News camera was at the scene around 8:30 a.m., watching as workers struggled to turn it off.
The water was shut off by 9:23 a.m.
A Bakersfield Police Department vehicle was at the scene but no one was immediately available to comment on what caused the gusher.
