With the frost going deeper into the ground it is starting to have an effect on the water mains and laterals. In an effort to protect the mains and laterals, the City of Fort Atkinson is asking that all residents run their water for 10 minutes in the morning and 10 minutes in the evening. The water should be run between 6:00 am and 8:00 am and 8:00 pm and 10:00 pm, using the cold water faucet running at ¾ to full open.
Effective immediately, please run a stream of cold water at a pencil thickness (outside dimension) in one faucet at your residence and/or place of business 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, until further notice. The unusually cold winter has caused frost levels in the streets and yards to extend below the bury depth of a standard water service line, which can cause freezing in less than 4 hours. If your residence is on a dead end street or built prior to 1980 it is especially important for you to run water to prevent freezing. In apartment buildings, only one unit needs to run water. You will not be charged for the additional water and sewer charges. Please call the City of Whitewater water billing department at 262-473-1383 to confirm that you are running water and to receive an adjusted water bill.
