Although Bolivar County experienced some freezing weather and the possibility of an ice storm recently, nothing happened except for a little bit of sleet.

Director of the Bolivar County Emergency Management Agency Bill Quinton said there had been no reports of anything to warn the public about as of yet.

Keith Christopher, the project manager for Severn Trent Environmental Services Inc., which is contracted by Cleveland for water and sewage maintenance said, that he hasn’t received any reports of frozen or burst pipes due to the weather.

Christopher also said that he isn’t expecting any calls to come in since the weather is supposed to warm up a little in the coming days.

Once the weather starts to get colder, there are a few things that you can do to prevent your pipes from freezing or bursting.

Christopher said, “The main thing people can do is to wrap their outside pipes well. You can also underpin your foundation and make sure you block the wind. But wrapping your pipes is the most important thing you can do.”
