Though today is the last day residents in the city of Knox and town of Hamlet are asked to run their faucets to prevent frozen pipes, residents of North Judson are still encouraged to run their taps until April 1, according to Clerk-Treasurer Donna Henry. She told WKVI this week that Town Superintendent Marshall Horstmann has asked residents to continue running water until the first of April to prevent any further freezing problems.
Henry said meter readings are being performed this week, and after that, no bills will be credited for the extra expense of running water to prevent pipes from freezing.
The town of Winamac is also asking residents to continue running water, as several buildings are still suffering from frozen pipes that have not yet thawed. Town Manager Jim Conner said that while it has warmed up a bit, he hopes that within the next week those services will thaw and people can stop running their water.
