Trenchless Sewer Pipe Lining and Your Business
Boston Winter Causes Major Pipe Problems
February 2016. The guests of the Newton Crowne Plaza Hotel evacuated over the Massachusetts Turnpike due to a major water main break. The hotel’s pipes burst, and water flooded the basement, putting the hotel at risk of an electrical fire. This was just one in the string of bursting pipes that February.
In Boston, firefighters responded to more than 330 pipe burst calls in two days. One of these included an AMC movie theater, where patrons were evacuated into the street. Another was the Stanley Elementary School, where children rushed into the cafeteria after water poured into the stairwell. The damaged required a large crew to clean the mess and forced the school to stop operating for a week.
Hospitals weren’t safe from the pipe damage either that winter. Officials at Kindred Hospital Boston North Shore reported boiler issues and water pipes bursting, which resulted in a few patient areas being flooded. The VA Boston Healthcare campus was also closed due to water damage by pipes bursting in the frigid temperatures.
No matter how much preparation you do, sometimes pipe damage is out of your control. The drastic changing weather caused the damage that put schools on hold and hotel guests on the street. When the temperature went below zero, the frozen water expanded the pipes. The temperature then suddenly rose and thawed out those pipes, forcing it to crack and pour water everywhere.
