Portion of St. Patrick St. closed until Monday

Posted:

A Rapid City street is closed until Monday following a large water main break.

Saint Patrick Street ... West of Mount Rushmore Road is under repair after a Black Hills Power crew ruptured a PVC pipe while installing underground power lines.

Rapid City Water Superintendent, John Wagner says the pipe burst caused an estimated half a million gallons of water to flow into the street and eventually the storm drains.

Wagner says the pipe likely split and will have to be replaced.  That will require a large excavation hole ... And time.

Three or four customers were without water service due to the break.
