oakes city of year 2011

Due to the depth of the frost line and inadequate snow cover for insulation, there is an increased possibility of residential/business water service lines freezing.

In order to prevent water service lines from freezing, the City is suggesting water users to trickle (which should equal a little less than a 1/2 cup per minute) water from one faucet in their home/business. The City will provide an extra 1,000 gallons of water at no charge. This will be effective for the months of February and March. If you have any questions, please contact City Hall.
