City repairs broken water main in North Minneapolis


Minneapolis Public Works personnel repaired a broken water main that failed Dec. 5, temporarily flooding streets and causing low water pressure to homes and businesses in north Minneapolis. A few businesses were without water for some time.

The rupture occurred around 5:45 p.m. in the 2900 block of 2nd Street N. The pipe affected was a 36-inch-diameter cast iron pipe dating from 1888.

Locals were also told to boil their drinking and cooking water as a precaution on Tuesday in case bacteria got into the water supply.

City crews installed a 16-foot replacement pipe segment and disinfected the pipeline after completing the work, according to a city news release.

Staff also cleaned and restored 2nd Avenue North and surrounding streets so that vehicles could resume traffic in the area.

Affected residents and businesses were on the east side of Interstate 94 and included 80 single-family or duplex residences and Lowry Towers, a public housing building.

Water samples were taken from the fixed pipeline and passed compliance testing on Sunday, according to the news release.

The city was distributing bottled water to residents affected by the rupture in Farview Park.
