Residents Urged to Leave Water Trickling
The Water Department is urging City residents to continue letting their water run even though the weather seems to be getting warmer. The freeze line now extends about 3 feet under ground. Water is freezing inside the water lines that go into homes. It will take several days in a row of warm temperatures before it is safe to shut off the water. Temperatures at night will need to stay above freezing also for this freeze notice to be lifted. Keeping a stream of water running as small as pencil-lead thickness will keep lines from freezing!!
