If you have experienced frozen water lines to your business or residence in the past, now is the time to turn your water bleeder “ON” so that your lines do not freeze. Please do not turn your bleeder off until you are notified in April. The outside temperature has little to do with your line freezing. It is the depth of the frost that affects your water service.
For residents living in a mobile home, please check to see if your heat tape is working properly. The water line is exposed to the elements and your line will freeze if your heat tape is not functioning properly.
If you notice your water is turning brown, this is a sign your line may be beginning to freeze. If this occurs, you are urged to run your taps until the brown water clears up.
