Preventing Frozen Water Pipes

The arctic front will drop temperatures below 0 with the risk for frozen water pipes.

William Higdon is General Manager of the Daviess County Water District.  He offers important tips to protect your home during the deep freeze.

  • Let water run at a low drip from the faucet until temperatures improve.
  • DO NOT remove the water meter lid as the box will lose ground warmth.
  • For homes with water heaters in the garage – do not leave the door open.
  • Open kitchen cabinets to allow heat to circulate.
  • Disconnect all hoses from outside faucets or they will freeze.
  • Mobile homes should have underpinning, heat tape, or insulation on water lines.
  • Call your water provider if you have a freeze-up.
