The water cascaded from a tube that burst on a path for three days causing frustration for nearby residents.
The video provided to ECHO shows the water bubbling away on Hollinghurst Road in the Tower Hill area of Kirkby.
It affects a path or sidewalk and even a grassy lawn that is now heavily flooded.
The eruption began on Thursday, but locals have since said they have difficulty convincing United Utilities to resolve it.
About 12 homes were uncomfortable with some people who had to wear wellies to access their properties.
A man said that the water was crawling near his garage.
Spectators said United Utilities was digging a hole Thursday before a pipe appeared to burst or be broken.
Dad Michael McGown, 48, told ECHO: “It is shameful that it was left that way.
“There are probably thousands of liters of water pumping out there, and what would happen if we had banned the hose by summer?
“Many people reported it, but apart from an hour ago, when the workers went out to simply pick up the fence that had fallen, I didn’t see or hear anything else.
“It’s not good enough.”
This afternoon, United Utilities said that the problem started for the first time after road works for a new residential complex nearby led to the fall of major water valves.
The teams then dug to locate the pipes, which caused the water to burst and erupt.
When the pipes are insulated, the water in 150 properties will be turned off, from midnight tonight, as work begins in the early hours to repair it.
The problem should be solved from the moment people get up, added United Utilities.
A spokesman added: “Sorry, it was a complicated process, but it should be resolved soon.”
