Because of an increase in reports of frozen water services, residents are advised to run water from the faucet closest to the meter at a trickle to prevent freezing.

The City of Evanston’s Utilities Department has received 12 calls regarding frozen water services so far this winter, with six of those calls occurring since Friday. Frozen service occurs when the water line between the street and the home freezes.
