water main breaks

Public Works Update

Public Works continues efforts to remove snow and prepare for water main breaks due to a major fluctuation in temperatures over the next week.  The temperatures are expected to fluctuate from -15 °F on Wednesday to 43 °F on Sunday, with a chance of rain. To minimize the possibility of localized flooding, Public Works will continue efforts in pushing snow back to expose curb inlets, in anticipation for drainage from snow melt, rain, and potential water main breaks. If you witness a water main break, dial 9-1-1. 


freezing pipes

Avoid Freezing Pipes 


Extreme cold during winter months can cause pipes to freeze and break, often causing damage to homes and an expensive repair bill. Residents may conveniently help prevent water pipes from freezing by allowing a cold water faucet to run at a trickle, approximately the width of a pencil point. Flowing water is less likely to freeze than stagnant water. The minimal cost of the water is a small price to pay to avoid potentially thousands of dollars in damage due to a broken water pipe.

Learn more about frozen pipes, how to help thaw frozen water lines, and when to call Public Works at villageoflombard.org/cold
