Special Notices


Annual Notice to All Residential Customers

Bills can pile up just like snow. But the Minnesota Cold Weather Rule is designed to protect people who may have trouble paying their utility bills in winter. The Minnesota Cold Weather Rule applies from October 15 to April 15. The rule, established by the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission, means that your utility cannot disconnect your residential water service during the winter if the customer meets the following requirement:   (1) utility disconnection would affect the customer’s primary heat source; (2) the customer has declared inability to pay on forms provided by the utility (Note: Customers receiving “any form of public assistance, “ including energy assistance, are deemed to have qualified for inability to pay status); (3) the household income of the customer is less than 50 percent of the state median income level, as documented by the customer to the utility; and (4) the customer enters into and makes reasonably timely payments under a payment agreement that considers the financial resources of the household.

               If you have trouble paying your utility bill, local agencies may be able to provide payment assistance. The state Department of Human Services recommends you call the county in which you live.

If you know you’re going to have trouble paying your utility bills, please contact the City of Waterville at 362-8300 to try and work out a payment schedule. We’ll try to help.

Thin Ice

Recent weather changes (dropping temperatures) may have caused some surface freezing of area ponds. Please be aware of the dangers of thin ice and be sure to educate your children of the dangers. During the 2012-2013 winter season, there were 6 ice fatalities in Minnesota. During the 2013-214 winter season, there were 3.

When is ice safe?

There really is no sure answer. You can't judge the strength of ice just by its appearance, age, thickness, temperature, or whether or not the ice is covered with snow. Strength is based on all these factors -- plus the depth of water under the ice, size of the water body, water chemistry and currents, the distribution of the load on the ice, and local climatic conditions.

There is no such thing as 100 percent safe ice.
