Channahon Area Chamber of Commerce issued the following announcement on Jan. 28.
Extreme cold can cause pipes to crack and burst. To avoid this expensive and damaging situation, residents are reminded to leave their water trickling, to open cabinets in order to expose water pipes to warm air, and to eliminate sources of cold air. If you experience frozen pipes, shut off the water immediately.
