The City of Blackwell is having a rash of leaks with these extreme temperatures and are requesting our help in conserving water through the weekend. We are in a catch 22 situation, running a trickle of water through a faucet is one way to help prevent your pipes from freezing, however, that is a waste of water unless you can capture it and use it elsewhere. Opening your cabinet doors will help with your pipes inside the house, especially those located on exterior walls.
If you have temporarily covered your meter with a piece of insulation or a small bale of straw, that should take care of the meter. Remember to remove those items from February 22nd to the 25th so we can read meters.
Conserve where you can…we are experiencing unprecedented cold for an extended time. The weekend forecast calls for temperatures above freezing.
Please share this information with affected neighbors that might not be on our email distribution list.
Thank you.
