Important Notice:

The Town of Sandy Creek Water Department is advising residents of Water District #1 to run a drizzle, approximately the size of a pencil lead, of cold water at night from one faucet during this extremely cold weather. This will help avoid the freezing of the water infrastructure. The current frost line is below the 5 feet mark which could cause water laterals and mains to freeze. If you go over the basic usage on your first water bill, the bill may be adjusted accordingly in April. The potential for freezing is greatest during times of low water use, overnight and weekends. Please spread the word to your neighbors in Water District #1, the area near Sandy Pond. Thank you in advance for your assistance in this matter. Residents may call the Town Clerk’s office at 387-5456 X6 with questions or concerns.
