How can I keep my pipes from freezing during the cold winter months?

One of the easiest and most effective ways to prevent waterlines from freezing is to turn on your faucets during the cold weather months. By continuously running a small stream of water (the size of a pencil lead) through your faucets - particularly faucets located on exterior walls - you can help prevent costly repairs. Avoiding Frozen Pipes (PDF).

Additional water usage charges may apply, so customers are encouraged to sign up for the Drip Program by calling Utility Billing at 970-244-1579. If your pipes do freeze, you should not attempt to forcefully heat your waterlines - it is best to let lines thaw naturally.
