Frozen Water Lines
Due to the extreme cold weather and deep frosts, some residents may experience frozen water service lines. As a precaution, citizens may choose to leave water lines running at a drip within their homes in order to help prevent the possibility of lines freezing.
Residents are advised; any water left dripping will count as water being used on their next bill; however it may prevent lines from freezing and prevent homes from being without water.
If residents choose to leave water lines open at a drip, leaving the lines open at faucets furthest from the water meter may help to maintain a constant flow of water through the house.
If you have any questions, please call City Hall at 852-2611.
