The Akron water department reports that so far this year they have repaired 11 water main breaks up from the same period last years 5 breaks.
The Hudson Hub Times spoke with Akron’s director of communications who stated the earlier and more extreme freeze temperatures probably had more to do with the breaks than the age and condition of the pipes, even the pipes “dating pre 1900 are considered in reasonable condition.”
Sounds like a job for “E-Pipe” to me!
With the repairs that have been made and the couple scheduled soon, the repair crews have managed to do this without interrupting water service, while it helps that most of the breaks are reported to be on bolt points, that has got to be tough being wet in the freezing temperatures, hats off to the technicians working in Akron, great job!
