Avoid Frozen Water Lines - Turn On Your Water Bleeder

Turn On Your Water Bleeder

If your home or business has a water line bleeder, please make sure it is turned on. Warmer temperatures actually drive the frost further into the ground.

Water line freeze-ups can happen anytime temperatures drop below zero and the frost starts penetrating into the ground. Factors influencing how deep the frost goes include: 

  • Snow coverage (or lack thereof)
  • Activities above ground, including the weight of vehicles on roads and driveways
  • Outdoor temperatures, including warm air driving the frost down

If you are running a bleeder, please contact Janet Schmidt, Utilities Clerk, at 780-852-6505 to ensure approved bleeder credits are applied to your account. 

Questions? Need help locating your bleeder? Contact the Operations Department at 780-852-3040 or
