(2/4/14) Black River Falls, Blair, Taylor, Alma Center and Merrillan water customers, within the city or village, are being asked to run a continuous stream of water about the size of a pencil from one of their faucets in their home or business until further notice.
The duration of extreme cold has caused the frost to reach depths of five to six feet causing water laterals to freeze. The movement of the water through the water service will prevent most of the water lines from freezing. Customers' will not be billed for the additional water and sewer usage during this time. Property owners could be responsible for any costs of repairs if they fail to comply with the water request. This DOES NOT include Broackway residents.
