Prepare For Cold Weather

Winter is here!  On occasion, we are subject to temperatures that fall below freezing.  You should plan to insulate exposed pipes and cover outside hose bibs before freezing weather approaches.  If you have above ground meters or backflow preventers please be sure these are wrapped to protect them from freezing. If you plan to be out of town for the holidays, consider turning your water off at the owner’s valve on your meter.  This important step could prevent water damage in the event your pipes should break due to freezing temperatures.
