In January, Lexington experienced six water main breaks due to fluctuating temperatures. The city of Lexington has proposed the replacement of old cast iron water main pipes with new ductile pipes, which are less likely to break when temperatures plummet. However, the plan would cost approximately $2 million, and would take years to complete. The majority of the city’s water main pipes have yet to be upgraded, therefore water main breaks will likely persist throughout the winter.
