Sturgis Public Works make repairs to broken water main


Gary Matthews - February 8, 2019

STURGIS, S.D. - Extreme weather hampered efforts by Sturgis Public Works crews overnight as they worked to repair a broken water main.

The break was reported Friday afternoon, and crews went to work right away.

The break was located Nellie Street, in between Douglas and Fleet Streets.

Public Works Director Rick Bush says crews worked all through the night, but the extreme cold hampered their efforts. He says the weather caused equipment to freeze and not work correctly.

The crew was helped by some larger equipment that arrived Saturday morning from Northstar Construction. Bush says they happened to have the excavator they needed.

Crews located the break around 10 Saturday morning. The City of Sturgis Facebook says repairs were being made, and they expected to have water back soon to those residents affected.
