Local Communities Fight Pipe Freeze

Rhinelander and Mosinee are asking residents to constantly run water to fight pipe freeze.

They'd like a small stream about the size of a pencil.

Both say customers won't be charged for the extra water they use.

Weston is asking people not to run their water, unless asked directly by the village.

So far, they're only having pipe freezing problems in one subdivision.

About 100 homes that need to open their faucets have gotten direct notification from the village.

Still, Weston is asking residents to keep a close eye on their water and call if they see any warning signs like a drop in water temperature, pressure changes, discoloration or things that signal a water service interruption.
