RICHWOOD — If the pipes burst at your home during this unprecedented winter storm, you might have ended up driving from plumber to plumber trying to find a business that’s open. But burst pipes aren’t only a problem for homes. Brazosport’s heavy industry has had to scramble to deal with the historic cold and its effects on infrastructure that typically doesn’t experience such extreme temperatures.

“Broken pipes, leaks, stuff like that,” is what they’re hearing at Dingee Plumbing Contractors, office manager Aimee Davis said late Tuesday afternoon. “We haven’t really gotten into a lot of stuff that’s really going on out there, residential-wise, because we haven’t been able to do the work or help them, because we’re tied up in the plants.”

And this is the same company that opposed looking into potential election fraud?
