NOTICE TO RESIDENTS
February 1, 2012
the City of Long Beach has changed the format for water bills. You will receive a self mailing envelope instead of a post card. Water bills can still be paid in person at City Hall or a pre-addressed envelope is enclosed for your convenience. Customers already set up for bank draft will receive a bill, however, this is for informational purposes only and no action will be required on your part.
WINTERIZING YOUR HOME
A severe cold snap can lead to frozen or broken pipes, which can stop water service and be expensive to repair. Some steps to help you avoid such an emergency:
· Know the location of your shut-off valve.
· If you leave for the winter, or if you have an unoccupied house or building, notify the water department to turn off the water service. Drain your system, disconnect and drain garden hoses and in-ground irrigation systems.
· Insulate any pipes or faucets that are located outside or in unheated areas.
If your pipes do freeze, place a warm towel or rag around the pipe or try a hair dryer with a low setting. Never thaw a frozen pipe with a torch or open flame. If your pipes break, shut off your water and water heater. If you are unable to locate the shut off valve, call Public Works at (228) 863-0440 for assistance.
