Midland City Pipes Constantly Being Repaired in Cold Conditions 1/7/14
CBS 7 News
Gary Sanders with Midland Transportation says the city is always repairing and working on maintaining water pipes within the city. He says when they close a pipe to work on it, they have to be very careful to open it slowly so the pressure doesnít come through too high and crack the pipe. Sanders says that especially with the cold, if thereís a leak they donít know about, the moisture could be seeping into the ground, freezing, and could affect the pipe while itís still frozen or when the ground thaws out.
