Re: prevent sewer from freezing

Can't argue about that, 40 below. (OUCH) I'm living in the southeast, but I was originally from the northeast. Are frost line was 36" and are water lines were installed below that. But it was not unheard of to see city sewer lines above the frost line. The heat created by the sewerage kept them from freezing. Our temperatures would on some occasions drop to 0.
