A Big Thank-You From Wall Lake for the Mutual Aid Support

Posted By IAMU, 23 hours ago

Wall Lake experienced a gas leak and disconnection on April 5. The community had 295 customers without gas service. Nine communities, as well as the Iowa Association of Municipal Utilities, sent help through the Mutual Aid Program to re-light furnaces and the like. Some 14 certified gas operators along with firemen spent six to eight hours performing no-flow tests and re-lighting appliances.

Wall Lake would like to thank all those who responded to the Mutual Aid call for doing an awesome job:
