Sunday’s severe cold is freezing water pipes in several homes in New Canaan, officials said.
Residents should know where their main water shut-off valve is located so that “in the event of a leak, they can reduce the damage to their residence,” Fire Chief Jack Hennessey told NewCanaanite.com.
“It’s usually located next to the water meter or the well tank in the house,” he said.
The National Weather Service reported subzero temperatures with the wind chill factor on Sunday evening. New Canaan is under an advisory, with snow expected Monday afternoon, turning to freezing rain and then back to snow overnight into Tuesday, the weather service said.
