Welcome to the Village of Black Creek!

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
ATTENTION VILLAGE RESIDENTS:

Effective immediately, please run a stream of cold water at a pencil lead thickness in one faucet at your residence and/or place of business 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, untiI further notice The unusually cold winter has caused frost levels in the streets and yards to extend below the bury depth of a standard water service line, which can cause freezing in less than 4 hours. If your residence is on a dead end street or built prior to 1980 it is especially important for you to run water to prevent freezing. In apartment buildings, only one unit needs to run water.

You will not be charged for the additional water and sewer charges. Please call the Clerk's office 920-984-3295 with any questions.

Thank you for your cooperation!
