RPU asks customers to monitor water temperature


ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 47) -- While the forecast calls for warmer temperatures Tuesday, RPU is reminding customers to monitor their water temperature.

RPU Communications Coordinator Tony Benson said customers who are running a constant pencil-width stream of water from their faucet should continue to do so for the next two months.

"With a frost level of nearly six feet below the ground, it will take a significant string of warm, sunny days to penetrate the frost level," Benson said. "RPU water experts suggest that because of such a significant frost level that the frost may be in the ground well into April."

Benson said a frozen water service repair can cost between $800-$1,000. The cost to run a constant pencil-width stream of water is approximately $40-$60 per month including sewer fees. Customers choosing to let their water run are asked to called RPU at 507-280-1500.
