Break shoots water high into the air

Posted: Updated:

Some Dallas businesses started the day without running water.

A water line broke early Wednesday on Skillman Avenue and Royal Lane on the city's northeast side.

Water shot more than 30 feet into the air.

It took workers about a half an hour to close the valve.

Another 84-inch water main broke near White Rock Lake earlier this week.

City officials said breaks are not uncommon during the summer months because of the drought and aging infrastructure.
