With freezing temperatures continuing to be in the forecast ~ we encourage everyone to allow a small steady stream of water to run from an inside faucet to help keep your pipes from freezing.  It may help if you have a sink against an outside wall to open cabinet doors below the sink so warm air can circulate.   

If you are planning to be away from your home for an extended period of time and have not winterized your pipes ~ don’t turn off the heat! Leaving the thermostat set to at least 55 may help keep pipes from freezing.

This doesn’t guarantee you will not have frozen pipes, but it sure beats the alternative and the expense is minimal compared to what it could cost to repair. 

For more information or if you have questions, please contact the KPUD Water Department at (800) 548-8357.
