Water main break leaves Pottery Place without water

A Red Wing city water main broke Friday night leaving Pottery Place, 2000 Old West Main St., without water and temporarily flooding the parking lot outside of Godfather’s Pizza.

Sgt. Dave Addleman of the Red Wing Police Department said the call came in around 6 p.m. informing them of the broken water main. Addleman said the police department was given no further information as to the cause of the break.

The city blocked off the Godfather’s Pizza parking lot and crews are expected to begin work to repair the broken main at 6 a.m. Saturday.

Crews hope to have the main fixed sometime Saturday, but no estimate to when water will be restored to Pottery Place was given.
