Mon 2-8-2021

(Milford)-- Area utilities say there's a simple thing you can do to avoid frozen water pipes. Officials with Milford Municipal Utilities are urging customers to run a lead pencil-size stream of water continually from a faucet.

It's also a good idea to open the cabinet doors below kitchen and bathroom sinks, especially if they are against an outside wall.

They add it's especially important to take those measures if you've had a history of frozen pipes in previous winters.

Experts say they expect to see an increasing problem with frozen pipes as the extreme cold is forecast to continue well into the foreseeable future.
