Flooded dorm reopens at USD after repairs wrap up

Posted: Updated:

VERMILLION, S.D. (AP) - A student dormitory has reopened on the University of South Dakota campus after being shut down since Monday due to a water line break.

University spokeswoman Tena Haraldson says students were returning to Coyote Village on Thursday morning, after crews finished cleaning up the mess and restoring electricity.

USD put hundreds of students up in a hotel for three nights, catering food for them and offering a shuttle service to campus. Haralson says the cost to the university for that and the repairs is still being calculated, but she says "it's going to be significant."

Officials are investigating whether the water line broke because of extreme cold.
