Freezing Pipes Continue to be a Problem in Charles City

water pipes leaking

CHARLES CITY- The City of Charles City issued another frozen pipe warning late last week.  In a news alert, the city states that reports of frozen residential and business water service lines have increased and that frozen service lines are being experienced throughout Charles City and the surrounding area.

The occurrences are caused by unusually deep frost lines which are in part a result of the prolonged extreme temperatures experienced this winter. As a precaution, the city continues to urge residents to monitor the temperature of the water from an inside cold faucet nearest to the water meter.

Even as air temperatures continue to improve, frost lines continue to advance deeper into the ground. This will occur until there is enough thaw in the spring to stop the frost line from advancing.
