Winter "Cold Weather" Pipe Alert
Because of the anticipated "single-digit temperatures during the winter months, you should protect the pipes in and around your homes and businesses. Pipes can be kept warm and protected with insulation. (check and set your thermostat to at least 60 degrees when temperatures are near freezing) Allowing your faucets to drip slowly into a dishpan or bucket (to reuse the water later) will also prevent your water line from freezing. You may also want to disconnect hoses and shut off the water leading to the faucet outside. If your pipes freeze, open all faucets and warm the pipes with a heat source exercising safety and caution.
If your pipes burst, IMMEDIATELY shut off the water at the main valve, then call a plumber!
Note: BEFORE AN EMERGENCY ALWAYS KNOW WHERE YOUR SHUT OFF VALVE IS LOCATED AND HOW TO TURN IT OFF!
Keep our Sewers "Fat-Free"
Don't throw away that empty can! Put cooled grease in a can, freeze contents until can is full, cap with aluninum foil then discard. Some examples of grease are: meat fats, lard, cooking oil, food scraps, sauces or dairy products. Some of the results of grease-clogged sewers are: raw sewage overflowing in your home or your neighbor's home, an expensive cleanup that often must be paid for by you, the homeowner, raw sewage overflowing into parks, yards and streets, potential contact with disease causing organisms and an increase in operation and maintenance costs for your Township's Sewer Department which will eventually cause higher sewer bills for customers.
SAVE WATER BY FIXING LEAKS
Most high water bill are caused by leaks in toilets. You can see and hear some of these leaks, but many are silent. The two non-toxic blue dye tablets in our "Leak Detection Kits" will give you a quick and easy way to check for leaks. The kits and information on other ways to conserve water in and around your homes and/or businesses are available in the Department of Municipal Utilities Office.
