Winter Advice from the Water Department

With winter approaching, the Cold Spring Water Department would like to advise property owners to protect their water lines, especially those in unfinished basements & crawl-spaces. A small draft near a water line, or an unheated space, combined with frigid temperatures can result in frozen or ruptured service lines.

Take a minute to look at your meter’s location and investigate possible issues that can be remedied relatively simply before any costly damage occurs.


n the picture above, insulation around the exposed service line and meter is advisable, unless the space is heated and there are no drafts. *if you decide to use heat tape, be sure to follow the manufacturer’s directions carefully to avoid the potential for a fire. Heat tape should not be used on plastic pipe.

As the saying goes, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”.
