How to Prevent Frozen Pipes

The cold weather presents a possibility for frozen pipes. Below is a list of things you can do to prevent frozen pipes:

  • Allow a faucet in the house to drip
  • Make sure outside hoses are disconnected
  • Vents in the crawl space are closed
  • Lid/cover on the meter box is on, not open
  • Insulate or apply a heat source to pipes on exterior facing walls or inside unheated garages

In the event a pipe should burst please contact the Town at (919) 372-7475 to come out and shut off the water at the street. Then contact a professional to assist you with the busted pipe.
