Bursting Pipes Cause Problems at Schools, Court

View Comments (


    Two schools and the Stamford-Norwalk courthouse will be closed today because of pipes bursting.

    The Ridge Road Elementary School in North Haven is closed because of a burst pipe and the Stadley Rough School in Danbury has an early dismissal.

    The Stamford-Norwalk Judicial District courthouse, at 123 Hoyt Street in Stamford, is closed to the public today. People with a court date scheduled for today should contact the clerk's office to determine when the case will be rescheduled to be heard. The clerk's office remains open to accept filings. 

    The courthouse should be open for business tomorrow.

    Freezing pipes have been a problem statewide since last week.

    Experts recommend keeping all your thermostats within five degrees of each other and to not let your home drop below 60 degrees because pipes in exterior walls will freeze.

    Several schools are operating on a delay this morning because of delays.
