Winter And Freeze Alert

Bursting pipes occur when frozen water causes a pressure buildup between the ice blockage and the closed faucet. Pipes in attics, crawl spaces, and outside walls are particularly vulnerable to extreme cold. Now that we have entered the winter months, here are a few tips to help avoid pipe damage in the event of a freeze:

  • Fit exposed pipes and outdoor water faucets with insulation sleeves or wraps to slow heat transfer
  • Keep a slow drip of water flowing through faucets connected to pipes that run through an unheated or unprotected space, such as bathroom or kitchen faucets that are against an exterior wall (the water in the pipe still may freeze, but allowing a slow trickle of water will alleviate pressure in the lines and help prevent a pipe from bursting)
  • Keep cabinet doors open to allow warm air to circulate around pipes
  • Never try to thaw a frozen pipe with an open flame!

If your water meter has frozen please contact the water operator, Jason Cork, for assistance at (214) 773-6013

Please be advised! During the fall and winter months, regular twice a week irrigation usage is not needed. Once every two weeks will suffice depending on local precipitation rates. To see how much water your lawn needs, check out this fast and easy Texas A&M water calculator at WaterMyYard.org
