People in Augusta no longer asked to run water

AUGUSTA, Wis. (WEAU)-- People in Augusta can now stop running their water.

In February the city, along with several other communities in the Chippewa Valley, asked people to run a continuous pencil-size stream to avoid pipes from freezing.

On Friday, the public works department said people could stop running water. This week, people in Thorp and Elk Mound were also told they could stop running water.

If you want to know if you should still run a continuous stream in your faucet, contact your local public works department.
