Municipal infrastructure upgrading: preventing future pipe freezing on the Northern Peninsula

Description 

The Northern Peninsula has few incorporated towns, and not all of them have city infrastructure, such as water services. During periods of extreme cold weather, pipes freezing in homes becomes a serious issue for these rural residents. Further, because of climate change, we may see these periods of extreme cold more and more. The goal of this project would be to investigate better plumbing materials and techniques to prevent future freezing in homes in rural areas.
