Water's back "on" in Wykoff after water line break Friday morning

Posted:
WYKOFF, Minn. (KTTC) -

After a bitterly cold start to the day, several hundred Wykoff residents were without water after a water line break around 10 o'clock Friday morning.

It took a little more than six hours to get things fixed and back to normal. The City of Wykoff sent out an alert that a water line break occurred on South Line Street.

Water filled the street, and quickly froze due to the frigid temperatures. Water was shut off on the west side of town while crews worked to repair the break.

The water was back "on" about 4:30 p.m. according to people gathered at Shooter's, a Wykoff watering hole, and word is that at least one home had water in the basement because of the line break and flooding.
