How Can You Help Prevent a Sewer Line Backup?
• Do not pour grease or cooking oil down the drain. Instead scrape out or pour cooking oil and grease into a container or plastic bag and dispose of it in your kitchen garbage.
• Do not dispose of large absorbent items like paper towels, diapers, baby wipes or feminine products, down the toilet, these are not items that disintegrate like toilet paper will, including “flushable” wipes. These products should be disposed of in your garbage.
• Kitchen garburators increase the amount of organic material in the service lines. Depending on the condition of the service line, organic material can stick to the lines and over time cause blockages. Compost your organic material instead.
To help prevent a sewer backup, be mindful of what goes down the drain. Your pipes are not built to handle most food items and will almost always cause a blockage in the short or long term. When in doubt, properly dispose of these items by throwing them away.

Water Meter Read/Estimate Schedule Starting – October 2019- May 2020
Between the months of October and May, the City puts in place an alternating schedule that includes meter reading for half of the City.
The alternating schedule is in place during these months due to extra time required to complete city-wide, month to month meter reads. Changes to seasonal staffing, colder temperatures, inclement weather, higher priority maintenance issues in cooler seasons, are all contributing factors in encouraging residents to provide their own meter reading.
Commencing October- North will have meters estimated, South will be read and residents should submit their readings to City Hall.
November- South Estimated or Submitted, North reads
December- South reads, North estimated or submitted
January- South estimated or submitted, North reads
February- South reads, North estimated or submitted
March- South estimated or submitted, North reads
April- South reads, North estimated or submitted
May- South estimated or submitted, North reads
WHY SHOULD YOU PROVIDE US YOUR METER READ?
Your water bill will be based on actual consumption preventing you from being over billed or under billed. Days of usage may be higher when an estimate is used resulting in higher billing. A water meter read will ensure accuracy. Estimates are based on prior usage, including summer months where water usage is typically higher. Actual water use in winter months will likely be lower resulting in a lower actual bill.
HOW CAN I SUBMIT MY READING?
By Phone- (306) 683-5556, you may leave a message but ensure to give your name and address with your meter read.
By Email- Contact our firstname.lastname@example.org to leave your water meter read.
In Person- Stop by City Hall during regular office hours to leave us your meter read.
