Buffalo, NY (WBEN) The Erie County Water Authority recommends customers trickle their faucets to avoid broken pipes during this bitter cold.

This applies to customers with homes containing unheated basements, crawl spaces or sections of exposed pipe to trickle their faucets to prevent their pipes from freezing.

The ECWA says if ECWA personnel are required to visit your residence to thaw a frozen line, customers will be charged a fee for this service.
