Water tips for cold weather:
Allow taps to drip - This helps to prevent water from freezing in your water line. Let it fill a cup and water your plants with it.
Make sure you know where your master shut off valve is in case of a water line break. Its usually in the basement or where your water line comes in from the street. Make sure everyone in your family know's where it is.
Open cabinet doors under sinks especially where plumbing is in exterior walls to let interior heat keep pipes warm.
Drain outdoor hoses and disconnect. One overnight freeze can cause the spigot or pipe to burst.

General information

The Consortium was established in 1967 out of concern that the siting of a major groundwater production facility by Cincinnati Water Works (CWW) in the City of Fairfield would threaten local groundwater supplies. Since its inception, the Consortium's primary focus has historically been water quantity. Beginning in 1980, however, the Consortium began actively looking at groundwater quality issues as well.
