Paul Nelson, KSL Newsradio Some homeowners in Kamas are having serious problems with their water. They say their pipes have frozen, and they don't know when they'll be fixed.

Temperatures haven't warmed up much in Kamas, and city officials say this year they've had more water problems than before. The cold has frozen the pipes of more than a dozen homes this winter.

"We just have to wait and hope the ground thaws out enough that we get water."

She's been waiting for four weeks. She does not want to give her name because she doesn't want trouble with the City. She's getting her water from a garden hose from her neighbor.

"In order to fix where the pipes have frozen, the City would have to dig up the road in front of my house, and they won't dig up the roads until the spring."

City officials say it's far too expensive to dig up the streets for now, but they've rigged the water system to let affected homes get water through another source, like garden hoses or fire hydrants.
