Yesterday when we first posted the image we found on social media about the Ship Bottom water tower gushing water, it was met with much disbelief.

People both suggested it was faked or at least not happening right then.

When OCSN arrived on scene, we found no gushing water, but what appeared to be signs of recent water.

However, it has since been confirmed by  Katie Pasqualini at Ship Bottom Police Department confirmed that the photo was real. The water tower was gushing water as a result of a frozen pressure gauge, she explained.
