Litres of water were seen shooting from the ground in the Port Purcell area of Tortola today, October 30.
The water appeared to be spouting at a relatively high pressure on to the main road and vehicles travelling easterly along the James Walter Francis Highway are being affected.
Motorists can be seen performing simple evasive maneuvres to steer their vehicles clear of the water, which has begun to cause a small flood.
It is not clear what caused the major water-waste but when BVI News visited the area, a metallic lid resembling a manhole cover was seen lying next to the source of the waste.
It is not clear whether the water is from a sewer line or an underground water line.
It is also not clear when the issue began but, up to press time, the issue was still unresolved.
