After being without water for days, water began to trickle to residents of Wing Saturday night, according to Burleigh County emergency manager Mary Senger.

The extreme cold left the city's water tower pumps frozen Thursday morning. Crews continued to work on the pumps in subzero temperatures through Friday afternoon.

Senger said Burleigh County provided an excavator to dig, and on Saturday they discovered a 20-foot break in one of the lines.

The North Dakota Department of Health was on scene on Monday to collect water samples, Senger said.

The city remains under a boil order until those samples are returned.
