The Zanesville Water Department is responding to a water main break near the intersection of West Main Street and Pine Street.
It happened around 5:30 a.m.
Police scanners indicated water could be seen spewing up through Muskingum Avenue.
Employees say it's an eight inch pipeline that's broken, and it's forcing a road closure on Pine Street from West Main Street to Muskingum Avenue.
They say the break is expected to be fixed by late afternoon.
We'll bring you more information as it becomes available.
