NOT YET! - Don't turn off your water

Please note: Warmer weather conditions does not mean that the frost that is 7-8 feet deep has thawed.

Please continue to run a faucet at a pencil width stream until you are notified from the City of Schofield via mail.


Water Service Lines Freezing Up - All Customers - Please Run Water Immediately!

All utility customers in the City should start running a stream of water immediately to prevent water lines from freezing up.

The City will inform you when you can stop running the water, however this may be well into March or early April.

Even if the weather does improve – please do not shut your water off unless notified by the City.

Residents who:

  1. Do not run your water OR
  2. Shut off your water without notification to do so from the City

WILL BE CHARGED for thawing the service line.

  • The stream of water from your faucet should be approximately the thickness of a pencil/pen - quarter inch in diameter.
  • The water needs to be left running constantly – do not shut off the faucet when the temperatures warm up during the day - the City will inform you when you can safely shut the faucet off.
  • Your water bill will be adjusted to take into consideration the extra water/sewer usage and you will not be billed for the extra water/sewer used.

City of Schofield is Now a Drop-Off Location for Peyton's Promise

April’s Items of the Month:
Paper Products: Paper Towel, Toilet Paper and Tissue

Peyton’s Promise was founded in 2007 by an eight year old girl, Peyton Medick, who discovered there were kids in her hometown of Weston, WI that went to bed hungry every night. Peyton’s Promise has grown into a huge organization with hundreds of volunteers and over 50 trained advocates working in their schools, and throughout the United States, to organize food drives and raise awareness about the problem of hunger.

Peyton’s Promise has 3 objectives:
  • To raise awareness about the problem of hunger.
  • To keep food pantries shelves full.
  • To fight childhood obesity.

Our organization has many different programs in place to collect food and we encourage the donation of healthier options. We encourage donations of our “Item of the Month” in our drop box locations, located throughout our community.

Every item has the potential to make a difference in our community. Donations stay within Marathon County.

“Thank you for Making the World a Better Place, one can at a time.”
