Water Main Breaks
A high number of water main breaks were reported this winter. Due to freezing temperatures and lack of snow, which can insulate the ground, an increase in stress on the pipe wall can occur. That can crack weak sections of pipe. Officials at Naperville’s water and wastewater utility report that December 2 and 28 had the highest number of breaks with four on each of those days. A big sign of a water main break – a reduction in water pressure on tap. You can call the water and wastewater utility for repairs.
