Lake Geneva residents urged to run water to prevent freezing

LAKE GENEVA (WITI) – Officials at the Lake Geneva Utility are asking residents to take precautions in order to keep water lines from freezing.

It is suggested that residents run their water for five minutes at least three times per day in an effort to keep water service lines from freezing.  The notice runs through March 31st.

If a customer notices a significant drop in pressure, officials say they should let it run for five minutes, then slow to a trickle for extended period – particularly overnight.

This is especially important for customers who typically don’t use much water, and for residents of dead-end streets where there is limited water movement.
