Water Laterals - Protect Them from Freezing
PROTECT YOUR WATER LATERAL – DON’T LET IT FREEZE!
Cedarburg Light and Water Utility would like to provide some pointers to our customers in hopes of preventing frozen water laterals.
Here are some general guidelines to help prevent a problem with your water lateral at home or at work.
Since there have been no reports of frozen laterals in Cedarburg at this point, and the frost depth is not generally at a dangerous level, the utility is not in a position to offer reimbursement to customers choosing to run their water periodically or at a steady trickle. Should these circumstances change, the utility may offer some reimbursement to targeted homes and businesses meeting specific criteria. Such an offering will be posted on the utility’s website and customers having a water lateral known to be at a higher risk will be contacted by direct mail.
Please contact the utility’s water superintendent, Tim Martin, with any questions.
