A water main break leaves the east side of an area hockey rink flooded and muddy.

Water and mud was seen pouring out of the front door of the John E. Carlson Coliseum at around 7:15 Tuesday morning.

A massive water leak between the gate valve and the water meter flooded the arena rink, concession stand, bathrooms, offices and lobby.

Water was about two feet deep in parts of the building.

The water line break should not delay preparations for flooding the rink for hockey in October.

"It's mostly a brick and mortar building, so there might be some sheet rock and carpeting that need to be replaced, but I think the building on a whole will be in good shape," says Dean Ambuehl, Fargo Park District Facilities Manager.

The building was built in 1967, but they don't know how old the pipes are.
