Water utility has been busy thawing frozen pipes
Hudson Water Utility workers have been busy thawing as many as six to eight water lines a day because of the unusually cold winter and deep frost.
Almost all of the freeze-ups have occurred in the service lines extending to homes from water mains beneath street right-of-ways.
Utility workers use welding equipment on the back of a truck to electrify the copper pipes and melt the frozen water.
