ENDICOTT (WBNG) -- A 12 News crew returned to the scene at 2:30 a.m. Wednesday morning. The Endicott Water Department says it's a water main break and will be on scene until further notice.

A section of the road will be blocked off until further notice. They also said there is no update on the water pressure for nearby residents.

A crew member said a water main break is, "One of those things that happens every once in a while."



Water was spewing on to a section Glendale Drive Tuesday night. 

The water started to pool up towards the end of the road, near the intersection of Glendale Dr. and Main St. in Endicott. As of 11:30 p.m. the road was closed.
