Niagara Falls, NY - Last winter's brutal cold caused some major issue with frozen water pipes in the city of Niagara Falls. Now a suggestion to try to lessen the chance of a repeat of that problem is raising the temperature for some.
Mike Tulino was one of those 72nd Street residents in Niagara Falls who endured days without water service last February after the pipes leading to their homes froze up. The city worked to thaw them out back then but Tulino and some other residents felt reconstruction of the street in recent years and the depth of the water lines may have been a factor.
Now Tulino is doubly frustrated "We feel like we were just blown off. Like you had your day, we didn't answer none of your questions. Here's your letter, now go away."
