Casper issues frozen pipe advisory ahead of subzero temps this week


CASPER, Wyo. — With an Arctic front encroaching on the city Monday and single-digit highs expected through Wednesday, City of Casper officials are reminding citizens to take steps to prevent frozen and burst pipes.

Casper’s Water Distribution Manager Clint Conner offered the measures property owners can take to prevent frozen plumbing:

• Leave a trickle of water running from faucets
• Open cabinet doors
• Turn up the heat

Conner reported City water crews will be available to turn off water if a break with spraying water occurs. The department can be contacted at 235-8360 from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday this week.

Monday, February 21 is a holiday for the City of Casper. After business hours and holidays, non-emergency dispatch at 235-8278 will dispatch crews.

“Though we are making City crews available to provide shut-off service, property owners are responsible for their water service from the curb stop near the street into their homes,” stated Conner. “Plumbers are often needed to assist in restoring water service.”
