Underground pipes are freezing, Round Lake is asking for customers' help

ROUND LAKE – The city of Round Lake is issuing a freeze warning as of February 13. The city said customers are starting to experience frozen underground water service. All customers are asked to leave a single cold faucet running. The city recommends a small stream about the size of a pencil lead. Even with warmer temperatures, they said, the frost will go deeper. Contact Round Lake City Hall at 507-945-8127 with any questions.

The city of Round Lake isn’t the only place suggesting a lightly running faucet. The city of Slayton made the same recommendation to their customers earlier this week. A recent notice from Slayton Public Works to residents states one faucet, preferably a hard water line, should be left running to keep water lines open. The stream should be pencil-lead sized, not just dripping. Slayton says the notice could be in effect through April, and the city will work with residents to adjust billing accordingly.
