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.
