The Columbus Water & Light Department has issued a water lateral freeze alert.
Briefly, this means that you should run a pencil-sized stream of water CONTINUOUSLY until notified by CWL that this is no longer necessary. This thin stream of running water could prevent the water coming into your residence from freezing. It could also help prevent the outgoing sewer lateral from freezing in the pipe.
As of Wednesday (2/26) morning, there have been seven (7) frozen water laterals in the City; this compares to none over the last six years and an average of 1-2 per year over the last 30 years!
