Keep the faucets dripping

The frigid temperatures are finally scheduled to subside over the weekend, but the Pascoag Utility District reminds residents to let cold water drip from faucets served by exposed pipes whenever the weather is very cold outside.

Pipes that freeze most frequently are those that are exposed to severe cold, such as outdoor hose bibs, swimming pool supply lines, water sprinkler lines and water supply pipes in unheated interior areas such as basements and crawl spaces, attics, garages or kitchen cabinets. Pipes that run against exterior walls that have little or no insulation are also subject to freezing.
