Freezing Water Line Precaution
Posted by LMURRAY on March 7, 2014
The Central Huron Utility Department is asking residents to take precautions in order to keep water lines from freezing.
The potential for underground pipes to freeze is extremely high with frost near record depths. It is suggested that residents run their water for five minutes at least three times per day in an effort to keep water service lines from freezing. The Water Department estimates the cost to be a few cents per day to run water three times per day for five minutes each time.
If a customer notices a significant drop in pressure or flow (potential signs of freezing), the Utility is suggesting that those residents let their water run for five minutes, then reduce flow to a constant trickle until the threat of freezing pipes is eliminated. This is especially important for customers who typically don’t use much water, and for residents of dead-end streets where
there is limited water movement.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Central Huron Utility Department at 519-482-3997.
