The forecast is predicting frigid temperatures and ice. During the predicted conditions, concerns over protecting you homes water pipes will be on many peoples mind..

To help prevent Frozen Pipes in the winter:

  • 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.
  • Allow cold water to drip from the faucet served by exposed pipes. Running cold water at a trickle, helps prevent pipes from freezing.
  • If you are leaving your homes do not set your heat to a temperature lower than 55*F

Madison Utilities has no higher priority than the safety of our customers and employees. Due to the growing concern regarding the spread of COVID-19 and the efforts to reduce exposure to the virus which are forcing many residents to stay home for indefinite periods of time, Madison Utilities is temporarily suspending service interruptions (lock-offs) for non-payment until further notice.
Customers are encouraged to make any payment (even if it is a partial payment) whenever possible, however, water service will not be disrupted during this time when clean water is more essential than ever. Customers who know they will endure a hardship associated with actions taken to curtail the spread of COVID-19 should contact Madison Utilities as soon as possible to discuss their accounts.
With the lobby closed, it is important to know that payments can be made a number of ways which do not require face-to-face interactions. Options include payment via personal online banking/bill pay, bank draft, putting a payment in the night drop box, or, customers may also make payments (temporarily) via telephone by dialing 256-772-0253 and speaking with a customer service representative.
