Protect Water Pipes from Extremely Cold Temperatures
Village of Croton-on-Hudson E-Notice
We are expecting extremely cold temperatures over the next few days.  The following are tips you may wish to follow to protect your home’s plumbing from extreme winter conditions:

•     Cover all outside exposed pipes

•     Check for and repair any drafts in your doors & foundation

•     Leave Kitchen & Bathroom cabinet doors open

•     Cut off water & drain water lines from vacant houses

•     Set heat no lower than 55 degrees

•     Heat outside or exposed utility rooms

•     Confirm that water to the outside spigots have been turned off  

•     In extremely cold conditions you may consider leaving faucets dripping slightly overnight

•     You will know the pipes have frozen if water will not come from the faucets.
        
        ** If pipes at your home should freeze, consult a plumber immediately and cut off main water valve located in your home.**
        
Note:  NEVER use an open flame to thaw pipes
