Crews fix sinkhole in south Moorhead

MOORHEAD – Repairs were completed about 2:30 p.m. Friday on a sizable sinkhole in south Moorhead that appeared earlier in the day.

The hole at 17th Street and 20th Avenue South appeared about 2:30 a.m. after a water main break, said Kris Knutson, water division manager for Moorhead Public Service.

Part of the water main there was replaced this summer, he said.

MPS General Manager Bill Schwandt said occasionally when they replace a water main, breaks occur where the new main attaches to an older line.
