Department of public works crews from across St. Lawrence County have seen a significant increase in frozen water pipes and water main breaks caused by unusually cold temperatures this winter. There were more than 40 reports of frozen water lines in Ogdensburg and Potsdam, at least 35 in Massena and 25 in Canton.

Did your or anyone you know experience frozen pipes?

Take the NCNow Survery.

Results will be posted Monday, March 9.


St. Lawrence County Sheriff Kevin Wells says cleanups of methamphetamine production sites are on track to surpass last year’s figures. Wells says the recent uptick in meth arrests across St. Lawrence County is due to an increase in the drug’s presence, not police finding more of what was already here.

Do you know of someone who has been affected by methamphetamine?
