CONCORD -- The Contra Costa Water District is encouraging residents to protect their outdoor water pipes in anticipation of the cold front that was expected to move into the Bay Area on Friday night.

Temperatures are expected to dip into the low 30s and high 20s this week, a situation that could cause exposed outdoor plumbing to freeze and burst, the CCWD said.

Residents can protect their pipes by insulating them with commercial pipe-wrap products available at garden and hardware stores, or by wrapping them with cloth or heavy paper.
