Warmer Temperatures Bring Flooding Concerns

By  | 

We have plenty of snow on the way today, but with above-freezing temperatures following, flooding is a very real possibility.

Local plumber Ken Timko, of Timko and Sons Plumbing, says the focus should be on your sump pump. First you'll want to test it by pouring in water to make sure it runs properly. You should also check sump pump lines because they could be frozen, keeping any flood waters from draining properly. Also, clear snow away from the lines.
