Deerwood becomes latest city to declare winter water emergency
Deerwood became the latest city to ask residents to run the water after an epidemic of freeze-ups.
“This year it has just exploded,” said Deerwood Mayor Mike Aulie.
Monday the Deerwood City Council declared the water emergency. Residents are asked to run the water in a pencil-sized stream through March and most of April. The city will average the bills for the last three months and not charge residents for the additional water.
