The City's Water Division encourages you to follow these tips to prevent pipes from freezing in your home during extreme temperatures.
- Make sure to insulate pipes in unheated areas or against outside walls and seal any leaks that may let cold air in.
- Keep your garage door closed if your water meter is located in that area.
- Disconnect your garden hose and shut off the water supply to outside faucets.
- If the temperature gets extremely cold, open cabinet doors under sinks to allow heat to get to pipes and let a faucet drip at a trickle if possible.
If you have questions, please call the City's Water Division at 630-260-2090.
