Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) - Good news for people living on 8th street in Moorhead.

The water is turned back on after a water line broke. Tonight, the Moorhead city council talked about permanent fixing the problem.

Right now, it's only in discussion. But the Public Service Commission says if plans go through they'd like to keep it as less-invasive as possible.

Ralf Mehnert-Meland, Public Service Commission: "There is a new technology out there now where we can actually, basically we can pull a big piece of material through the old pipe, bust open the pipe and pull in a new pipe within. That means we don't have to dig up the whole street."

If Moorhead does go through with the project, funding has been set aside for emergencies like this one.
