COLD WEATHER TIPS FROM NAHANT DPW | PROTECT YOUR PIPES DURING COLD WEATHER
PP

Water mains and water meters can freeze when the temperature remains below freezing for extended periods of time. That can pose a threat to water service, as can temperatures that dip in and out of freezing, which causes the ground to buckle and sometimes bends and breaks water lines.

Here are a few tips to help protect your water lines during periods of cold weather:

• Insulate pipes located in unheated parts of your house. This is especially a good tip for those who have had frozen pipes in the past.
• Let a thin stream of cold water run from a basement faucet. The stream should be a continuous flow, about the thickness of pencil lead. This water can be caught in a bucket and used later as laundry or dish water.
• If a pipe should freeze, gently warm it with hot air from a blow dryer at the point where it enters the house.
• Be sure you know the location of the water shutoff valve in your home. Check it periodically to ensure that it works properly.
• Be sure to shut off water to outside faucets.
• Periodically monitor your sump pump. A frozen drain pipe could result in a flooded basement.
• Keep bottled water on hand. Figure on needing a gallon of water per person per day.

Remember, Water lines running from the meter to the house, as well as internal plumbing, are the responsibility of the property owner.
