Cold Weather Precautions

Cold Weather Precautions

--Open cabinet doors and turn water to a slow drip to prevent pipes from freezing.

--Wrap pipes either in pipe insulation (available at hardware stores) or with towels, clothes, etc... to prevent pipes from freezing.

--If your pipes freeze, turn off the main valve inside your house (if possible) and call MLGW's emergency contact number at 528-4465.

--Space heaters should be used safely. Do not use overnight and when no one is home. Position space heaters so they are not near flammable objects.

--More information about winter safety and preparation is available here.
