Water Treatment Facilities Battle Cold Weather

Local water treatment facilities are dealing with the cold weather. Officials have to make sure equipment doesn't freeze up so people can get their water without any issues.

Officials at the Morgantown Utility Board are saying the water temperature is 40 degrees, but the top layer of the water supply can freeze.

It doesn't affect M.U.B.'s daily operations, but the weather can put a strain on some of the equipment. To prevent any issues workers head outside once in a while and carefully remove ice build up.

M.U.B. Communications Director Chris Dale said, "We don't want any of the equipment to experience any large scale ice build up on it and get in the way of how it properly functions."

Officials aren't concerned about the water treatment supply freezing up, but they do worry about pipes freezing throughout the Morgantown area.
