Roseau is beginning to experience problems with frozen service lines. Roseau residents who plan to be away from home for multiple days, with zero water usage, are asked to call the Utilities Department for advice on how to avoid problems. Their number is 463-2351. This is expected to remain a potential issue for weeks to come.
Due to the freezing water issue that the City of Greenbush is experiencing, they are recommending that everyone citywide run their water through April 15. A stream slightly smaller than a #2 pencil is recommended. The water usage rate has been increased from 1000 to 5000 gallons to cover the extra usage, over 5000 will be billed at the normal rate. Questions? Call 782-2941.
Due to the freezing water issue, the City of Badger is cautioning its residents of freezing pipes as well. They say to run water normally during the day but if you leave for an extended period of time please notify the City Office and/or have someone look after your residence while you're away. Also, take a few minutes a day to test your water temperature. If you're worried about your water freezing, run it at a toothpick flow and let the City of Badger know so they can work with you on a water rebate. The number to the Badger City Office is 218-528-3670.
