New Holstein, WI, January, 2015 – When you walk into the True Value hardware store in New Holstein, you probably never look up. And why would you? You’re on a bee line to aisle nine to get that “thing a ma jig” that you trust the hardware store to have when you need it. Or you need paint or tools or an outdoor grill or a light bulb – you name it, they probably have it. The next time you’re at the store, take a look up at the ceiling (careful not to trip over the menagerie of products while you’re gazing upward). What you will see is a bunch of light bulbs – 488 light bulbs if you care to count them. But these aren’t just “run of the mill” light bulbs. They are all energy efficient LED (light emitting diode) light bulbs.
Water meter testing will begin in December. The Public Service Commission (PSC) requires that water meters be tested periodically to insure their accuracy. The water department will also be checking for cross connections, which is required by the Wisconsin Administrative Code. Cross connections are connections that have the potential to allow contaminated water supplies to cross with clean water supplies. If your home is selected to have this testing done, you will be contacted by phone or in writing.
We appreciate your cooperation concerning this matter. If anyone has any questions or concerns, please contact us at the utility office at 898-5776.
