The Town of Broadview requests all property owners to continue to leave a constant flow of water running in their house/business to prevent water service lines from freezing - DO NOT shut-off the constant flow of water when the temperatures warms up during the day. The Town's Public Works crew found frost nine (9') feet deep when they had to dig down to fix a water break on March 24th and 25th. To date the Town has had 5 service lines to properties freeze, one which couldn't be unthawed. The constant flow of water only needs to be through one tap/faucet and the flow of water needs to be such that the flow of water is similar in thickness to that of a piece of spaghetti.
The Town will inform property owners when the constant flow of water can be safely shut-off, which may be well into the month of May.
