(KMOV) – A St. Charles street was shut down after a massive geyser was shut in the air due to a water main break Tuesday morning.

The 16-inch water main break happened at the intersection of New Town Blvd. and Fountain Lakes Blvd. around 10:45 a.m.

Crews responded to the scene and turned the water off, though New Town Blvd. remains closed in the early parts of the afternoon.

Additional information was not immediately available.

The incident comes just days after another water main break had thousands of St. Charles and St. Peters under a boil and water conservation order.
