UPDATE: Sewer Line Repaired, Stearns County Road 1 to Remain Closed Tonight

Abby Faulkner

SARTELL — Repairs to a ruptured sewer main underneath Stearns County Road 1 between St. Cloud and Sartell have been completed, but the road remains closed.

Sartell City Administrator Patti Gartland says the road repairs won’t be completed in time to re-open the road tonight. She says it will re-open sometime tomorrow. It’s unclear when that will be, however.

The road was closed between County Road 1 and Heim’s Mill after a resident reported sewage leaking into their basement. An excavation crew then struck the line causing it to rupture.

Gartland says they may never know what caused the initial leak but added it is unusual because the pipe was replaced only six years ago when a new lift station was built in the area.
