With extremely cold weather in the forecast, the Newville Borough Water and Sewer Authority reminds customers to take necessary measures to prevent frozen household pipes. Protect your home by wrapping exposed pipes with insulation and eliminate sources of cold air near any waterlines. The Authority also recommends allowing a small trickle of water to run overnight to keep pipes from freezing. The cost of the water is minimal compared to repairing the damage from bursting pipes. And if your pipes freeze, shut off water immediately at your home’s main shut off. Do not attempt to thaw frozen pipes unless the water is shut off. To thaw pipes, apply heat from a hair dryer, space heater, or hot water. DO NOT USE a torch or open flame. For more information or assistance, please contact the Newville Borough Water and Sewer Authority at (717) 776-7633 or the Operations Office at (717) 776-5633.
