Cold weather tips given

November 27, 2002


City officials recommend the following to prevent water lines from freezing and breaking in cold weather:

⢠Disconnecting and draining outdoor hoses. Otherwise, a single hard, overnight freeze can burst either the faucet or the pipe itâÂÂs connected to.

⢠Sealing off cracks in basement windows.

⢠Leaving cabinet doors open under sinks.

For more information, call the cityâÂÂs utility billing office at 832-7878. In case of a water emergency after 5 p.m. weekdays, or all day weekends and holidays, call 843-2685.
