Due to the extreme amount of water line freeze-ups, the Town of Walkerton Water Department is asking residents to leave their water running in at least a pencil-thin stream until further notice. Residents should not shut off water even if warmer temperatures occur. The warmer temperatures will force the frost line deeper as the above ground warms up. If freezing does occur leave the faucet(s) open, a frozen pipe will still need pressure relief to prevent a pipe burst. Your water bill will be averaged from previous months. The lines that are freezing are the home owners responsibility. The Town of Walkerton is allowing this added usage at no additional cost to you but accept no responsibility for possible damage to the homeowners pipes if freezing occurs.
