Frozen Water Pipe Symptoms & related Public Advisory Notice 02/27/15
 
Because of the very cold temperatures we have continued to experience, there is a possibility that water pipes can freeze and cause pipes to burst.

If the water pressure in your home or business has decreased significantly or if the water is coming out of your faucets very slowly or seems to be very cold, please open a faucet and run a pencil-wide stream of cold water continuously and contact the City of Brighton’s Utilities Department at 810.227.2968 and press the prompt to report a water emergency.  Our Utilities Department will visit your home or business and determine if your water pipes are beginning to freeze.

Slow flowing and very cold water could be signs that your water pipes are beginning to freeze.  Taking these steps when the symptoms are first noticed could prevent them from completely freezing.
