Water main break cancels classes Monday at CLC Staples

A water main break and sinkhole resulted in canceled classes Monday on the Central Lakes College (CLC) Staples campus.

The break happened sometime in the overnight hours of Sunday and early Monday morning when it was discovered, said Kenn Dols, director of Marketing and Public Relations for CLC.

The water main broke as the result of an exterior frozen water line, Dols said. There was no damage to the building or property, but water service was off at the campus for most of the day Monday as crews were on scene repairing the damage.

“It was pretty messy over there,” Dols said Monday.

The water main was fixed as of late Monday afternoon, and classes were scheduled to resume on a normal schedule Tuesday.
