FDL Using A Lot Of Road Salt This Winter
Fond du Lac
Public Works Director Jordan Skiff says the City has used a lot of salt on its
roadways this year, but should make it through the rest of the winter without
worrying about running out. Skiff says
Clear Snow & Ice From Gas Meter
After getting another wave of snow earlier this week be sure to clear ice and snow away from your natural gas meter and furnace vent. Alliant Energy says that the build up can cause the meter or gas appliances like a furnace or hot water heater, to malfunction. If a vent is blocked, carbon monoxide cold build up in your home or your furnace or hot water heater could stop working. Newer furnaces and water heaters vent out the side of a home, so you should make sure those are clear as well.
