City of beloit Deals with Frozen Pipes

Add the City of Beloit to the long list of communities dealing with an unusually high number of water main breaks.

Water Resources Director Harry Mathos says the water utility typically deals with 30 water main breaks in an entire year, and they've had 30 in January alone.

Mathos says another issue is water service lateral freezes.  Mathos says this is something they've never dealt with in the past.

Mathos says crews are working around the clock to thaw pipes as quick as possible.
