Auburn Water Department Provides Tips for Dealing with Cold Temperatures

Posted by thowens on January 25, 2014

With continued freezing temperatures expected, the Auburn Water Department reminds customers to protect their water meter and supply piping from freezing during these frigid winter temperatures.

  • Avoid drafts on meters and piping by repairing broken windows and keeping garage doors closed.
  • Place space heaters and install insulating products, such as pipe insulation and heat tape, in unheated areas where freezing could occur.
  • Run a trickle of water at a faucet to also prevent freeze-ups. 

The Auburn Water Department is not responsible for damage to the water meter or supply piping due to freeze-up. Please protect your water system during these winter months! There will be a $100 charge if the water meter should freeze and break.



Taxpayers have the ability to view budget notices in one central online location at BudgetNotices.IN.Gov. A new email subscription option is provided to taxpayers to stay informed of submissions by their local units. Taxpayers will be able to view all local government units in DeKalb county, search by their address, or use an interactive map tool. This website has been designed to promote the importance of budget notices and the role that they play in the daily lives of Indiana taxpayers. Taxpayers that do not have Internet access or have difficulties with the website may contact the Indiana Department of Local Government Finance at (888) 739-9826 and request a paper copy of the notices for their local government units.
