How to Prevent frozen pipes
January 05, 2018
Tips from the American Red Cross on
How to Prevent Frozen Pipes
Keep garage doors closed if there are water supply lines in the garage.
Open kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors to allow warmer air to circulate around the plumbing. Be sure to move any harmful cleaners and household chemicals up out of the reach of children.
When the weather is very cold outside, let the cold water drip from the faucet served by exposed pipes. Running water through the pipe - even at a trickle - helps prevent pipes from freezing.
Keep the thermostat set to the same temperature both during the day and at night. By temporarily suspending the use of lower nighttime temperatures, you may incur a higher heating bill, but you can prevent a much more costly repair job if pipes freeze and burst.
If you will be going away during cold weather, leave the heat on in your home, set to a temperature no lower than 55° F.
IU Sustaining Hoosier Communities Class Presentation Invite
November 21, 2017
A graduate level class from the IU School of Public and Environmental Affairs spent three months researching complete streets policy and implementation strategies for Bedford. They will present their work to the public on December 4, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., at StoneGate Arts and Education Center, 450 I St., Bedford.
Complete streets are those designed to enable safe access for all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit riders of all ages and abilities. Fourteen students in three teams researched national and state best practices for complete streets, analyzed Bedford planning documents, and met with Bedford leaders and residents. The class also brought in Indiana experts on complete streets and looked at complete streets policies and implementation strategies in similar Indiana communities. They will show potential implementation strategies for three streets that were also highlighted by the Bedford Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan and the Bedford Active Living Workshop.
This is one of twenty classes that are working with Bedford, Mitchell and Lawrence County as part of a new initiative called Sustaining Hoosier Communities, which is part of the IU Center for Rural Engagement. Fourteen projects were identified by local leaders for collaboration with IU faculty and their classes during this academic year.
