There was so much water it poured into the parking lot and posed a threat to nearby businesses.
Officials soon discovered the source was an underground water break.
The pipe pumped out nearly 100 gallons a minute.
Crews were called in to help pump out the water, and a disaster cleanup company was brought in to finish the cleanup.
