On Friday Nancy Bekkedal, Utility Clerk for the City of Viroqua, said that people can stop running a slow trickle of water.
A number of area communities wanted residents to leave one small trickle of water going from one faucet in a home in order to prevent pipes from freezing from this winter’s cold temperatures. The cold weather created a deeper than normal frost layer that had the potential to affect underground water and sewer pipes.
A number of communities did report freezeups of water and sewer lines including Viroqua, Sparta and Prairie du Chein.
