Frozen water lines

The Town of Claresholm is asking for your help. Town water service lines are freezing up in some areas from the water main into resident’s homes. This is typically happening in the sections of Town that are older and have shallow lines. The frost has gone very deep due to the extended cold snap, and one way to keep shallow lines from freezing is to keep a trickle stream of water flowing through a tap in the home. If you are away from home, you need to ensure that your water line is being used. The Town is contacting residents directly that we believe are most affected. Water usage will be monitored and bills will be adjusted as necessary. The Town would like to thank everyone for your cooperation.
