Prevent Water Liens from Freezing

Please be advised that residents should take measures to prevent water lines from freezing in this extreme cold weather. Ensure there is a heat source where the water line comes in to the home, and cold air drafts are sealed off.

The City is responding to calls regarding frozen lines; however, most water lines are freezing in the walls of homes. Efforts to prevent water lines from freezing may reduce the cost of thawing for the homeowner and avoid the costs for the City’s Water and Wastewater crew to respond.
