The City of Plattsburg’s Public Works crew has been working overtime to combat service interruptions due to water line breaks. But the extra time hasn’t been the issue. Rather, it’s subzero temperatures that they’ve had to battle.
In particular, on Monday, February 15, around 11 p.m., the department received a call on a line break. The freezing work began around midnight and lasted until nearly 6 a. m. Tuesday, February 16.
