The City of Hot Springs and the Hot Springs Fire Department are asking everyone to stop running water faucets as a pipe-freezing preventative measure because temperatures are warming and conservation of water is required.
Experts have found that uninsulated pipes can freeze if low temperatures fall below around 20-degrees. The National Weather Service forecast for Hot Springs shows low temperatures not dropping below 30-degrees overnight Feb. 20, and overnight lows will be rising throughout the week.
Approximately 3,000 homes and businesses have had their pipes burst due to the cold temperatures. If this has happened at your home or business, please turn your water off or call Utilities for assistance at (501) 321-6200.
