Communities asking people to run their water

Many cities are asking residents to keep a faucet running at a continuous, pencil-sized trickle until further notice due to freezing water.
Many cities are asking residents to keep a faucet running at a continuous, pencil-sized trickle until further notice due to freezing water.

Because of the threat of frozen pipes, many communities in the area are asking residents to run their water non-stop.

Most of the following communities are recommending a constant stream the size of a pencil. Many communities also say they will adjust water bills so customers are not charged for the extra water used. Contact your local water utility to see how your bill will be handled. Many communities also warn that customers who do not run their water as directed will be responsible for the costs associated with frozen pipes.
