The City of Rhinelander Water Utility has observed that frost has now released from ground surfaces in the area and the running water credit for approved utility customers should now come to an end for the 2013 winter season. Based on the seasonal warming trend being observed, it will no longer be necessary to run water to prevent freezing in the public water system.
The running water credit system again successfully minimized the freezing that can occur in the public water system this season. The city appreciates the conservation of water on the part of the utility users.
Running water credit will not be allowed for water supplies metered with excess flow after April 18.
