Crews to fix water main break in Menomonie Tuesday

MENOMONIE, Wis. (WEAU) -- A water main break in a community's downtown area is not expected to interrupt water services.

The City of Menomonie reported the break across from the Veteran's Memorial, which is adjacent to Crescent Street, on its Facebook page Monday afternoon. The city's water department says it found out about the break when one of its employees noticed it on Friday afternoon. It caused some bricks to shift in the sidewalk nearby, but no other damage.

The city asks drivers to be careful in the area. Crews are expected to dig in the area to fix the problem Tuesday morning.
