Mall searching for water break
GRAND FORKS — Crews were searching Monday for a water main break that forced several stores at Columbia Mall to close during the weekend.
Several stores were closed Saturday after being flooded by a water main that broke Friday evening somewhere between J.C. Penney and Sears in the mall’s northeast quadrant. One store, Foot Locker, remained closed Monday, said Bill Reid, the mall’s general manager.
Reid said said electric and other utility lines were marked over the weekend before the contractor began searching for the break, but had not found it by Monday afternoon.
