I'm going away for the winter. Will my pipes freeze?
If you are planning to leave your house unoccupied during the cold season, the Water Resources Department recommends that you call us to remove the meter and turn the water off at the street. It is also recommended that you have your plumber winterize the water lines inside the house.

If water is left on in the house during cold weather and the heat is lower than normal, then a water line may freeze. This can result in severe damage to your home and belongings. You are also responsible for any damage to the water meter due to freezing.
