More problems reported with water pipes in Park City

by Jay Hamburger THE PARK RECORD

The Park City Police Department last week received at least two complaints about water problems, continuing a string of cases that started when the temperatures became frigid earlier in December.

On Sunday, Dec. 15 at 2:06 p.m., the Police Department received a report that a large amount of ice was seen in the gutter and on the road somewhere along Rossi Hill Drive. The person who contacted the police said they saw water moving underneath the ice. The person was concerned there could be a water leak somewhere, the police said.

The day before, on Saturday, Dec. 14 at 11:47 p.m., the police received a report that a "major flood" was found in a home that is for sale on Three Kings Court. The owner of the home is from outside of Utah, the police were told.

During the previous week, the police received a series of complaints about broken or frozen water pipes.

The Park City Water Department suggests people heat their places to at least 55 degrees and keep cabinets open to let warm air circulate toward the water pipes.
