Warm Weather Leads To Water Main Breaks

Many people were out and about enjoying warm weather Sunday, and while it was enjoyable, it did unfortunately cause some problems. MUD crews told WOWT 6 News the unusual temperatures were to blame for several water main breaks across the city.

Crews responded to breaks at 709 W 31 Ave, 884 N 68 St, 873 William, 7729 Parkview Blvd, 12618 Arbor St, and 5416 Pine St.

WOWT 6 News caught up with crews at 54th and Pine where they dug about 7 feet to make the repair.

There they said with the below zero temperatures last week, combined with now unusually warm temperatures, the pipes likely couldn’t keep up with the change.
