With temperatures continuing to fall this week, the City wants to remind residents to take action to avoid frozen water lines this winter.
Most importantly, do not shut off heat to a home or business that is unoccupied. Water pipes will freeze and burst, causing a significant amount of damage. Opening cabinets underneath sinks helps keep pipes warmer during the winter.
People should make sure that outdoor garden hoses are disconnected. If water pipes are located on the outside walls that are not insulated, it is recommended that a small stream of water be constantly running to avoid the pipe from freezing.
With temperatures expected to be in the teens most of this week and single digits on Dec. 11, the City will be opening its warming centers
. Please note the hours of operation and no overnight accommodations are available.
