The villages of Prairie du Sac and Sauk City are issuing an alert to residents about cold weather freezing water in pipes running to their properties.
City officials said extreme depths of five feet or more have increased the risk for laterals freezing.
The Richland Center Water Utility is also asking residents to keep their water running 24/7 until further notice. They are reporting frost depths between five and five and a half feet deep.
A water utility spokesman said the issue could last until April.
Water customers are asked to check the temperature of the water coming into their properties at the closest point it enters the building. If the water temperature is close to 38 degrees or lower, residents are asked to call their water utility as soon as possible.
