City of Lubbock urges residents to prepare for first freeze

Provided by City of Lubbock

The City of Lubbock is preparing for possible freezing weather. Street crews are monitoring the weather and road conditions. Crews will begin salting operations if conditions warrant.

The City encourages Lubbock residents to make sure their homes are prepared for the drop in temperature. Water pipes are vulnerable to extreme weather changes. Here are a couple of tips for protecting your water pipes:

  • Disconnect and drain outdoor gardening hoses.
  • Let your indoor faucets drip.
  • Open cabinet doors below sinks to allow heat from your home to circulate. 
  • Locate your home's main water valve in case you need to turn off water to your home. The main water valve is usually located where the main waterline enters your house.
  • Make sure your irrigation system is turned off. Also, turn off the system's isolation valve, which is typically located close to your water meter.
