NORTH PARK PUBLIC WATER DISTRICT
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
For Immediate Release
Effective immediately, the North Park Public Water District is requesting customers in the following described service area to continually run their water to avoid the freezing of their water service pipe to their home.
The area is described as:
East of Illinois Rt. 251 (Second Street) to Mildred Road;
and South of Harlem Road to Windsor Road.
Extreme cold temperatures have created a situation whereby customers are experiencing frozen water lines leading to and within their homes.
The District recommends customers follow these procedures to help prevent frozen pipes at their homes:
1. Allow your water to run in a sink or tub with at least a pencil diameter flow 24 hours per day, 7 days per week until further notified.
2. Allow cabinet doors under sinks to remain open to allow heat to circulate around the pipes.
3. Insulate or warm pipes in unheated basements or crawl spaces.
If you know your home is susceptible to frozen pipes and you are not in the described area please follow these procedures as well.
Should you have questions our 24 hour number is (815) 633-5461.
Thank you for your cooperation.
