Events & Notices
of frozen residential and business water service lines have
increased this week. Frozen service lines are being experienced
throughout Osage and the surrounding area. These occurrences are
caused by unusually deep frost lines which are in part a result
of the prolonged extreme temperatures experienced this winter.
As a precaution, the City urges residents to
monitor the temperature of the water from an inside cold faucet
nearest to the water meter. If the measured temperature is below
40 degrees you should open a cold water faucet to a slow stream.
By keeping the water moving you should prevent the service line
from freezing. This information should be used only as a
guideline with additional judgment exercised for each individual
It is very important to understand that even
as air temperatures continue to improve, the frost line also
continues to advance deeper into the ground. This will occur
until there is enough spring thaw to stop the frost line from
advancing. While difficult to predict, this could take between
six and eight weeks depending on the weather conditions for the
remainder of the winter season.
Thank you for your patience.
