Attention Residents of Marathon (Frozen Water Line Policy) – Policy WO0034 has since been revised at Town Council Meeting of January 26, 2015, and The Town of Marathon will no longer be responsible should the service lateral freeze at any time, regardless of property line. We encourage property owners to do all they can to prevent a reoccurrence, by ensuring that a bleeder valve or cold water tap is flowing. We suggest that this bleeder be used until the risk of freezing from frost penetration has passed. You can view the new revised policy and get helpful tips by clicking the link (pdf) Frozen Water Service Line (doc) (pdf)
