Tips for preventing frozen pipes

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - As the Southern Tier continues to brave the ever decreasing temperatures, the City of Binghamton is warning residents about the dangers of frozen pipes.

Mayor Rich David issued some tips for residents on ways to prevent frozen pipes.

Residents are urged to keep garage doors closed if there are water supply lines in the garage.

Another tip is allowing cold water to drip from the faucet served by exposed pipes.

Trickling water can keep a pipe from freezing.

If residents plan on traveling out of the area for more than a day, they are encouraged to keep their heat at no less than 55 degrees.

Any residents with questions regarding frozen pipes can call the Binghamton Public Works Dispatch at 607-772-7020.
