KIMBALL -- The City of Kimball is encouraging residents to keep a small amount of water running during cold temperatures to prevent frozen pipes.

Due to the freezing temperatures, the City of Kimball would like to remind residents to leave a small stream of cold water running in your home, especially at night, or when you will be gone for an extended time, or when no water is being used.

A small stream approximately the size of a pencil lead should be enough to prevent water freeze-up, which can break pipes and water meters. Please run your water when the temperature is 10 degrees or colder.

Customers are asked to contact the Kimball City Office at 308-235-3639 with any concerns or questions.
