new electric GE 40 gal water heater

i just bought and installed a new 40Gal water heater from GE electric. i could not figure out why the pipe connect to the relief vale have nonstop water coming out from the side of my house when i turn on the cold water to fill the new tank?
any advice would greatly appreciated!

Either you have a totally malfunctioning T&P relief valve or....it's been bumped to the open position. The little lever on the end needs to be flipped so it points down and not in a horizontal position.
