The City of Salida maintains four frost gauges around town due to water meters freezing in the past. The meters are located at the Salida Rec Center, Touber Building, Public Works Department and across from the Water Treatment Plant. The City is conducting this monitoring in order to better understand at what level frost becomes a problem in relation to freezing water meters.
During the winter season we will post on the City website once a week what level the average frost depth is at.
This morning, Monday, December 16, 2013 the frost depth average was 15 inches; the previous week was 10.5 inches, the week before was 3 inches and the first week the frost gauges were checked (11/25/13) frost depth was at 1 inch.
