Water Dept Offers Cold Weather Tips

Posted by thowens on December 27, 2017

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 is a charge if the water meter should freeze and break.

Keep Fire Hydrants Clear

The Auburn Fire Department also reminds you to keep fire hydrants clear and free of snow so they are easily accessible in an emergency.
