During extreme cold weather your home is susceptible to frozen pipes. Leave a faucet dripping to keep from freezing. Know where your water shut-off inside the house is and that it is in operating condition.

High Water Bills?
Check for running toilets and water softeners. They are the primary cause for excess water usage. Check the small, red plastic triangle on the face of your inside water meter. If it is rotating, water is being used.

Rusty Water?
It is not uncommon to have rusty water when hydrant flushing occurs. Running water for 15-20 minutes will help clear your line. Record your beginning and ending water meter numbers you can call them into City Hall for a credit on your water bill.

Pool Fills Credit
Provide City Hall with a record of your beginning and ending meter numbers for a sewer credit on your water bill.
