Attention ALL City of Abbotsford Water Utility Customers:
The City of Abbotsford is now requesting ALL water customers to run your water continuously, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, effective IMMEDIATELY. This effort is being made to prevent water pipes from freezing up.
It is recommended that you run one faucet anywhere in your home with a continuous stream of water, approximately the size of a pencil.
Extreme cold weather has pushed frost depths past 7 feet in paved areas and where snow has been removed. This is very near the depth of water mains and water service laterals and is the likely cause of freeze ups that have occurred and would likely occur without this action. The City will inform you when you should stop running your water.
Customer water bills will be adjusted for the water usage to prevent freeze ups on the basis of historic usage as required by the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin.
For more information, questions or concerns, please call the Abbotsford City Hall at 715-223-3444 ext 0. Like us on Facebook or check our website for immediate updates or announcements.
