Keep your fire hydrants clear
Help protect your home and neighborhood by clearing around fire hydrants after every snowfall.
Blocked hydrants mean slower response to extinguishing fires which can result in catastrophic consequences if fire fighters have to spend time locating a buried hydrant and / or clear snow away from it, especially if the snow is heavily compacted from snow plowing.
If you have a fire hydrant adjacent to your home or business, please clear all the snow at least three feet around it on all sides after each and every snowfall ...

Don't Fall Victim to Utility Scams
During this time of year, scammers frequently take advantage of worried utility customers using the threat of disconnection to demand immediate payment. There are a few things you can keep in mind to avoid being a victim. Stoughton Utilities will never call you and demand immediate payment over the phone, nor will we ever accept payment when visiting at your home. We will never require payment by prepaid debit card or wire transfer.
In all cases except those where a very serious safety hazard exists, Stoughton Utilities will contact you by mail at least 10 days prior to any scheduled disconnection. If a serious safety hazard exists, we will not require or accept payment to cancel the disconnection.
If you receive a suspicious call, hang up and call our office to determine if it was a SU employee. If anyone claiming to be a SU employee visits your home or business, request to see their utility ID card and contact our office if you question the authenticity. If anyone claiming to offer bill payment assistance visits your home, close the door and immediately contact the Stoughton Police Department ...
