Winter ChallengesJanuary 17, 2013 - Author: Sarabeth Hill - No Comments
Its been a challenging few weeks maintenance wise here on the WIM campus. Cold weather, down to 20 below at night, has created frozen water lines causing several of our staff to be without water for almost two weeks. Scott has been working diligently with others on trying to get these pipes thawed, but to no avail. We’ve received a number of suggestions with ideas on how to thaw the pipes. Unfortunately, due to the location of the frozen pipe and the combination of plastic and metal piping, none of them have been feasible. Scott even sought outside help, but none of the plumbers in the area will deal with frozen pipes. Thankfully the forecast is calling for warmer weather with temps into the upper 40s for the next week and we are hopeful that they won’t stay frozen much longer.
