Prevent Pipe Freezing (2021)

faucet and water flow

These past few chilly days have been a solid reminder that winter is far from over. We’re requesting that all residents run cold water in lower sinks at pencil width for the duration of these sub-freezing temperatures.

This simple step helps prevent pipes from freezing.

  1. Clear the sink of obstructions
  2. Ensure water drains properly
    (You’ll want to make sure the water doesn’t overflow and cause floods; so make sure drains are functioning properly)
  3. Turn on the cold water
    (The water stream should be very thin, roughly pencil width)

Following the above steps will ensure consistent water flow through underground pipes, greatly reducing the risk of freezing!
