City Of Sturgis Warns Of Possible Frozen Water Lines

(STURGIS) – Another community is warning its residents about the possibility of frozen water lines.

With the extremely cold weather continuing this week, The City of Sturgis and its Department of Public Services is asking residents to be conscious of freezing water lines. With the colder than normal temperatures the area has been experiencing, conditions are suitable for water lines to freeze.

City officials are recommending residents allow a low stream of water about the size of a pencil to run from a single faucet in their house. While this will not guarantee water lines won't freeze it is the best possible measure.

In addition, citizens should watch for symptoms of frozen or freezing water service lines, such as a slight decrease in water pressure; water becoming rusty or cloudy and water that is colder than 35 degrees.

Risk factors for frozen water lines include homes with a history of water service freezing; homes with smaller water service lines (5/8 inch), and customers whose water lines travel under the street or driveway to the home or building.

If you suspect you have frozen water lines, please call the Department of Public Service at 651-2879 between 7:30 AM and 4 PM, or you can call 467-4195 after regular business hours.
