[ARCHIVED] Bitter Cold, Leave Faucets Drip

Waukegan is going into a deep freeze for the next many days.

During cold weather, freezing and ruptured pipes are one of the most common causes of household property damage. One of the easiest ways to prevent this expensive frustration is by leaving one or more or your faucets on a slow drip. The most crucial faucets to drip during extremely cold weather include those that align an outside wall or are in a non-heated area of your home. For most homes, this includes a kitchen or bathroom sink or tub. You might also consider utility rooms, attics, laundry rooms, or garage sinks.  Finally, keeping cabinets under sinks open to circulate warm air around the pipes may be beneficial.

For more information, contact the Waukegan Water Meter Department at 847-360-0966.
