With weather forecasts in the mid-20's over the next several days, it is time to protect those pipes. The Oro Valley Water Utility would like to remind residents of some simple steps they can take to reduce damage caused by freezing.

Remember to protect exposed water pipes with foam or wrap insulation.

Seal off any areas that allow cold, outside air to get into pipes and home plumbing.

Winterize your cooler and irrigation system to avoid frozen lines and potential leaks.

Know how to shut off the water supply to your home or business.
