Water Main Breaks & Changing Temperatures Progress!

When our region goes through freeze and thaw cycles, especially when accompanied by heavy rain, the ground shifts and pipes break. Yesterday, we had over 25 broken mains to repair using our DPW crews and contractors for the work. As some mains were repaired, others broke, often many miles away. We kept at the repair work all night long.
