Water main break on Sunday evening causes muddy scene near highway

Posted:
 ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- A water main break caused gallons of water to gush near Highway 52 in Rochester on Sunday, but fortunately did not affect any homes.

Rochester Public Utilities were called to the 1500 block of West Frontage Road at around 6:30 Sunday evening. When they got there, they saw water rising from the road in front of Car Hop Auto Sales.

According to RPU, only three businesses--Car Hop, Quality Woods Furniture, and RTA Auto Sales--were affected by the break. Crews are expected to have the water main fixed by Monday morning.

The cause of the burst pipe is still under investigation.
