December 3, 2013 - To help prevent broken pipes and water leaks outside the home or business, NTMWD officials recommend customers cover all outside water spigots using common Styrofoam covers or other materials that will insulate the spigots during freezing temperatures. Before covering, outdoor water spigots should be inspected for leaks and repaired. Water district officials also recommend automatic sprinklers and other irrigation systems, such as drip irrigation, be turned OFF at the control box. View the press release.
