City hall is making some headway on reducing the number of properties waiting to have their frozen water lines thawed.
The city released its daily update this afternoon, reporting 1,359 properties on the wait list – a drop of 13 from Monday.
But the number of properties with frozen lines continues to increase.
Another 18 properties were identified with frozen lines between Monday and Tuesday, with the total since November now at 2,424.
The city was able to restore full water services to 31 additional properties in the past 24 hours, and provided temporary hose connection to 18 other properties during the same time frame.
