Mesquite, TX – February 12, 2021 – With freezing temperatures expected to continue throughout the weekend and into early next week, the City of Mesquite wants to remind residents to protect the three P’s: People, Pets and Pipes.
First, it’s important to secure your home and protect your pipes from freezing. Here are a few precautions that will help residents decrease the chances of having plumbing problems.
