Detroit Lakes, MN (WDAY TV) -- There have been more than 20 cases of residential service lines freezing up this past week. Homeowners should check tap water temperature.

If it's 40 degrees or colder, leave a pencil-thick flow of cold water going to prevent pipes from freezing. Homeowners have to pay for the city's pipe-thawing service which can cost hundreds of dollars.
