Cold temps cause frozen sewers in parts of WI

Posted: Updated:

GREEN BAY (WKOW) -- The cold and ice continue to make life rough for people all over the state, but the conditions in Green Bay are putting extra demands on those who work to keep the metro area running.

Four crews work around the clock chipping away ice to keep equipment running at Green Bay's sewage treatment plants. The cold temperatures are causing frozen sewers for customers.

Experts say the worst scenario is if the sewage plants would shut down and sewer systems could back up into people's homes. More than 220,000 customers depend on this particular water treatment plant.
