Ten homes were affected when a water main burst in Spalding late last night.
Water was spotted gushing on the Springfields Camelgate roundabout and the supply to the homes was cut off for Anglian Water workmen to work through the night.
Residents on social media were describing it as the town’s new water feature.
The supply was switched back on at 5.30am until 11am for the breakfast period.
A spokesman for Anglian Water said: “There has been a delay because of recent roadworks and the amount of concrete the workmen have had to get through to get to the main.
“However, we are hoping the supply will be back on by mid-afternoon.”
