In White Bear Lake, 82 service lines have been reported frozen so far, said Mark Burch, public works director/city engineer. The city is seeing 6- to 8-foot-deep frost in the streets, the deepest in years, he said. Like Roseville, White Bear Lake is offering a water bill credit.
Roseville City Council Member Tammy McGehee said cities and the state should do more to help homeowners.
“The typical policy in Minnesota is your water is your responsibility,” McGehee said. But residents shouldn’t have to be the ones to fix frozen pipes, she said.
“I think it’s a job of a municipal community that supplies water as a commodity they need to be responsible that that community is supplied in a timely and ongoing manner,” she said.
