SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Some 2 million gallons of Sioux Falls drinking water were lost during a New Year's Day water main break.

An emergency team from the Sioux Falls Public Works water division responded to the break in a 20-inch water main on the Big Sioux River near Falls Park and stopped the leak. The treated water was emptying into the river.

State and city environmental teams were notified and are monitoring the water.
