N. Mankato Crews Fix Water Main Break

Posted: Updated:

For the 2nd time in a week, the City of North Mankato public works crews needed to repair a broken water main.

The department was alerted to the problem near Allan Avenue and Lehigh on Tuesday, but needed to shut off five valves and notify 57 residents to make the repair.

The water was shutoff this morning at 8:15 and crews needed to dig through 30 inches of frost to expose the pipe around 10 o'clock this morning.

City officials tell KEYC that they expected the work to be completed by noon and the water to be back on.
