WISCONSIN NEWS ROUNDUP: Water crews are finally getting a breather
MILWAUKEE -- Water crews are finally getting a breather, after a winter filled with broken mains and frozen pipes throughout Wisconsin. In Milwaukee alone, about 660 water service lines burst from December through March 28th. That's almost twice as many as the previous winter. Milwaukee water users will end up spending almost one-point-seven million dollars for outside crews to inspect and repair broken water mains. That's four times as much as the year before.
