Polar Vortex Ushers In Pipe Problems to Minnesota

The Polar Vortex has finally made its exit but what it left behind is rather unfortunate. Pipes that froze during the record-breaking freeze are starting to thaw, revealing the damage done to aging and damaged water pipes.

Many homes and businesses are starting to see major problems with their pipes now that they’ve began to unfreeze. Excess flooding and pipes bursting are the majority of problems. Plumbers are seeing record volume numbers.

During the 2014 polar vortex, many Twin Cities residents lost water service entirely after the lines from the street to their homes froze. In St. Paul that year, crews went out with a generator and connected heavy cables to the pipes to thaw the lines with electric current.
