Prevent Water Service Freezing

With the dip in temperatures, the City wants to make sure you are aware of the possibility of frozen service and offer some advice to hopefully prevent it. Extreme cold temperatures can lead to frozen service water lines.

Please periodically check the temperature of your water coming from a faucet in the lowest level of your home. Thermometers can be found in hardware or variety stores. If the temperature is below 40 degrees, it is recommended that you let a faucet run continuously until April 1 or whenever your water temperature is above 40 degrees. The stream of water does not need to be extreme, perhaps the size or thickness of a pencil lead. The small incremental cost of additional water might be $4-$5 per month. However, this is small compared to the cost of thawing out a frozen water service. If you have any questions, please contact City Engineer, Mark Graham at 651-204-6050 or mark.graham@cityvadnaisheights.com.
