There have been 36 water main breaks since Friday reported in Montgomery County.

Crews have been repairing between eight and 10 breaks a day and have about 18 left, Brianna Wooten, Montgomery County Environmental Services communication coordinator said.

A video taken in the 200 block of High Knoll Drive in Dayton shows water shooting into the air and onto a house from a main break. The main break happened Tuesday.

Tuesday afternoon, a main break was reported near the Church of the Church of the Incarnation. Incarnation Catholic School, 45 Williamsburg Lane off South Main Street near Centerville, is closed for Wednesday. Wooten said that main break is on the schedule to be repaired first thing in the morning.
