Mounts says crews have a "full court press." He says they will be out tomorrow fixing smaller breaks they haven't been able to get to yet. He says the warm up on Sunday may cause some trouble for the department, but it's hard to predict.
"It's the river water," said Mounts. "The temperature of the river water that makes the most difference to us. It's running about 38 degrees, so that's why we're surprised that we aren't seeing more breaks. But we have so much pipe in the ground. That's why it's so difficult to predict where it may occur."
That's why Mounts says they need citizens to call in and let them know if there is a break in their neighborhood. Mounts says he's looking forward to Febuary when temperatures will hopefully warm up.
