More Water Main Breaks
CEDAR RAPIDS (CBS 2/FOX 28) --
The cold isn't just affecting the number of school delays and cancellations across Eastern Iowa.
Homeowners have been dealing with more water main breaks, too.
On January 23rd, two separate breaks in Cedar Rapids forced crews to shut off water to a total of 30 houses.
City officials say we're seeing more breaks this winter than previous ones, including triple the number in January. So far this month, we've seen 36 breaks. Last year, it was only 9.
