Decorah’s Water Street was closed between Winnebago and Washington Streets, beginning Monday morning, due to a water service line that was leaking. Decorah Water Department Superintendent Todd Ihde said the water service line for Rubaiyat Restaurant, 117 W. Water, sprung a leak over the weekend, which required city water personnel to dig a trench across Water Street and run a new line from the main to Rubaiyat Restaurant. Ihde said the new water service line is larger than the one that broke, which was installed in 1997.
