Due to the cold temperatures this winter and subsequent warmup, area homeowners may experience water service interruptions due to frozen piping. As the air and ground temperatures fluctuate, frozen moisture underground will tend to migrate deeper into the soil, which could cause water to freeze within underground piping.
To help prevent this from happening, homeowners may want to run water through the cold water household faucet more frequently and for slightly longer periods on a daily basis. The City of Sioux Falls Public Works Water Division will monitor ground frost conditions and notify the public when this condition no longer exists. If you have any questions, please contact Jeff Dunn in City Engineering at 367-8601.
