Your pipes are not the only thing that can freeze

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

With the cold temperatures here, many people take precautions to keep their pipes from freezing.

But did you know your water meters can freeze as well?

Kevan Inboden with Joneboro's City, Water and Light said they've not had a huge number of calls about this issue yet.

“They need to make sure their water meter lids are in place and they're not broken,” said Inboden. “And the reason we say that is if those meter lids are missing or broken it allows that cold air to get down around the meter and it can cause that meter to freeze and potentially bust.”

Inboden also wants to remind people to leave water dripping from faucets to keep pipes from freezing.
