CHICO, Calif.- Cal Water is on scene at 9th street & Wall in Chico fixing a busted water main.

Cal Water says they got the call just after 8 p.m. Sunday night that water was coming up from underneath the roadway.

Workers told Action News Now that they believe the problem is old cast-iron that eroded and broke.

They plan to shut down one of the two lanes of 9th Street throughout the night as they work to tear out the asphalt and repair the broken pipe.
