Cold Weather Information

With the cold weather upon us, don't let freezing temperatures catch you by surprise. There are a number of problems that can be caused by frozen water pipes, and it can be very costly to repair them. Remember, unlike most things, water expands when it freezes which can result in damage to water pipes, valves, meters, etc.

With a little forethought and insulation, you can protect yourself from the headaches and costs associated with frozen pipes.

Hydrant Clearing

The Water Authority would like to remind homeowners and businesses of the importance of keeping fire hydrants free of ice and snow so firefighters can connect their equipment without delay in the event of an emergency.

 In an emergency, every second matters. Fire hydrants that are blocked, concealed or difficult to access due to snow or ice can impede emergency fire response.

Fire trucks carry a finite amount of water, so one of responders’ first tasks upon arriving at a fire is to locate a water supply from the nearest hydrant. Hydrants covered in snow can be difficult to locate, and uncovering them can waste valuable time needed during a fire fight. Keeping them clear can mean easier access to water and more time doing what really matters — fighting the fire
