BARNESVILLE, Minn. (Valley News Live) - Water was temporarily turned off at Atkinson Elementary School
in Barnesville today. During that time, we're told students weren't allowed to use the bathroom. The principal tells us the water was turned off for about 15 minutes while the city did some work and that it's back on now.

More water outages are planned for the weekend. The City says on Saturday, a water hydrant in the SE area of town will be replaced - which means a number of homes will have no water from 9 am to 11 am that day. The area affected by the outage will be posted on the City of Barnesville's Facebook page later this afternoon.
