CBJ: Prevent frozen pipes

Posted: November 19, 2013 - 1:00am

The City and Borough of Juneau is reminding residents that its Public Works department no longer has the ability to thaw frozen water pipes. With temperatures expected to remain below freezing in the coming days, the city is recommending citizens take preventative measures including:

• Closing crawl space vents.

• Ensuring pipes are properly insulated.

• Ensuring heat tapes are plugged in and functioning properly.

• Hoses are disconnected and hose bibs are turned off.

Individuals experiencing frozen pipes are being asked to contact a plumber or contractor.
