More than a week long period of below freezing temperatures at night and several daytime high temperatures below freezing have begun to cause problems with public and private water pipes.
The City of Mount Vernon experienced the worst of the problems. A major water break was discovered around noon on Sunday. This caused a disruption of water services to all city water users of about 4-5 hours. For more details, see the Jan. 9 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
