MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A southern Minnesota city will be without sewer service for at least a week after floodwaters damaged the city’s sewer plant.

Via its Facebook page, the city of St. Clair said portable toilets have been set up throughout the town. The city has also asked citizens to limit their water use and avoid flushing toilets or putting water down any drains.

There are also three portable units with running water and electricity in the city. One unit also has a shower.

The city asked for citizens’ patience and did not give an exact timetable for repairs.

    I just poop out in the hay field when our toilet is one the blink. It is very refreshing, although my wife may have a different opinion.

    This presents no problem for the Somali community who have a much higher proportion of cell phone users than those famiiluar with the use of latrines or toilets, much less those equipped with running water for hand washing. Support your local Somali kitchen staff. they add their special cultural flavor to your food from back home.
