The extreme winter weather has put both Nappanee and Benton Harbor under a system wide freeze warning.
Folks are asked to leave their water running to protect their meters and pipes from freezing.
They are recommending you use the faucet furthest away from the meter.
The water should run in a small stream, no larger than the size of a pencil lead.
Doing this lowers the chance of pipes freezing.
If the weather warms up, do not shut the water off.
All residents and businesses who have left their water running should contact the water utility to be put on an adjustment list.
The number for Nappanee Utility is 574-773-4623.
For Benton Harbor, it is 269-927-8471.
