Water Use Restriction Lifted
Winter is Coming
And it’s now time to winterize your homes including your water pipes. If your house will be vacant during the winter months it is recommended that you winterize your water system to prevent any freeze ups and water damage that could prove quite costly.
Another recommendation is to let you water run a pencil thin stream when temperatures stay below freezing for any length of time.
If you have any questions, call the Fire District Office @ (413) 743-0179.
