Watermain Break on Center Avenue in Moorhead Due to Hydrant Hit

Westbound Traffic Blocked Off While Moorhead Public Service Crews Make Repair

 

On Monday morning, August 20, 2012, several watermain breaks occurred along Center Avenue in Moorhead, between 7th Street and 10th Street. The breaks are believed to be caused by a broken water hydrant due to a vehicular collision. The broken hydrant is located on the corner of Center Avenue and 8th Street. Moorhead Public Service (MPS) crews began to repair the watermain at approximately 11:00 am on Monday, August 20, 2012. Several customers along Center Avenue will be without water until the watermain is repaired, which is expected to be completed in the afternoon of August 21, 2012, or as soon as possible. Westbound traffic on Center Avenue, from 7th Street to 11th Street, is temporarily closed, and will be re‑opened once the watermain break is repaired.

  

Moorhead Public Service is a community-owned utility serving the residents of Moorhead, Minnesota, with electricity and water.
