Frozen-waterline battle a tough slog
The city is making some headway in reducing the number of properties waiting to have their frozen waterlines thawed, but the number of properties with frozen lines keeps increasing.
The city reported there were 1,359 properties on the wait list Tuesday, a drop of 13 from the day before.
Another 18 properties with frozen waterlines were identified between Monday and Tuesday, with the total since November now at 2,424.
The city was able to restore full water service to 31 additional properties between Monday and Tuesday and provide a temporary hose connection to 18 others in the same time frame.
As of Tuesday afternoon, the city reported:
-- Number of properties reporting frozen waterlines since November: 2,424, an increase of 18 from Monday.
-- Number of properties where water has been fully restored: 1,065, an increase of 31 since Monday.
-- Number of properties on the list for thawing services: 1,359, a decrease of 13 from Monday.
-- Number of properties with temporary water service: 826, an increase of 18 from Monday.
-- Number of properties without full or temporary water service: 533, a decrease of 31 from Monday.
