Help Prevent Frozen water pipes Seal water drafts around fixtures.
Insulate pipes in unheated areas.
When freezing weather is coming, turn off water to outside spigots and drain all water from the pipe line.
Report broken or missing meter lids to the Authority to help prevent frozen meters.
During extended absences from home in the winter, DO NOT TURN OFF the heat, set the thermostat to at least 55F or simply shut off the main water valve to protect pipes.  
DO NOT WAIT! Avoid the panic caused by a flooded house. Locate the main shut-off valve, mark it, and make sure everyone knows where it is.
