Maynard, Minn., looks to Legislature for funds to protect treatment plant


MAYNARD — The city of Maynard escaped serious problems after a sanitary sewer line collapsed on Easter Sunday, but city workers are keeping a watchful eye on a patched up system as the city seeks funding help from the state.

City workers were able to temporarily bypass the collapsed sewer line and prevent backup problems in basements in community homes, according to Maynard City Clerk Amanda Dack.
