Your water lines may be at risk of freezing during prolonged periods of bitter cold. 

  • Monitor the weather reports for extended periods of sever cold; then take action.
  • Allow warm air to circulate in the area where the water comes in to the house.
  • Leave utility room doors open and clear space around the waterline.
  • Run your cold water closest to the water line entry point for a couple of minutes and then take the temperature of the water.
    • If it is below 40 degrees Fahrenheit it is recommended that you let your cold water run from this faucet at a pencil thickness
    • You should run it non-stop when there is no one home, overnight when temperatures typically dip lower, or no water is being used for a period of time
If your water line freezes:
  • Use heat tape, a space heater (don't leave it unattended) or a warm hair dryer on the pipe.  Follow all safety precautions recommended. 
  • Watch for unintended consequences of sewer or septic backups if running water continuously.
The City of Hancock will not be responsible for water line freeze-ups.  Please monitor your water temperature and if it reaches 40 degrees, you should let your faucet run slowly to prevent freeze. 
Reminder: As temperature rises the frost goes deeper. 
Please continue to monitor your water even when the weather warms up.
