MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — More than the roof needs to be replaced at the home of the Minnesota Vikings.

Metrodome owners say the artificial turf is full of bacteria and mold because of the water that leaked into the stadium after its roof collapsed in December. Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission chairman Ted Mondale says insurance will cover the cost of replacing the turf, estimated at more than $500,000.

A recommendation on the turf replacement could be made to the commission Thursday. Mondale tells the St. Paul Pioneer Press (http://bit.ly/pR4tfY ) that replacing the turf won’t delay the progress on the new roof. The finishing touches are being put on the rebuilding project that began in March.
