Black Maternal Health Week is a time to reflect on how we can do better - Milwaukee Community Journal

We are approaching the end of Black Maternal Health Week founded and led by the Black Mamas Matter Alliance.

This week has provided a prime opportunity to discuss, inform and search for solutions to addressing the crisis of Black maternal mortality and morbidity in Milwaukee and across our nation. The future for Black mothers will be better if we work together to push back against and eliminate inequities and barriers to better maternal health.

Joint statement from Alderwoman Milele A. Coggs, Alderwoman Chantia Lewis and Alderwoman Nikiya Dodd   Black women in America die from complications related to pregnancy at roughly two to three times the rate of white, Hispanic, Asian American, and Pacific Islander women.

Prevent Frozen Water Pipes and Water Meters

If your pipes freeze, you will not have water – Be Ready for Freezing Temperatures

Water pipes and water meters can freeze within hours if exposed to cold air, especially when temperatures are below 32° F. and remain below freezing for an extended period of time. If your pipes or meter freeze, you will not have water. It can be expensive to repair or replace them.

If you have a damaged water pipes in your home, please call a licensed plumber for assistance.

Frozen pipes are one of the biggest risks of property damage when the temperature drops. A burst pipe can cause more than $5,000 in water damage, according to the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety.

Property owners are responsible for protecting both water pipes and the water meter from damage. If you own vacant residential or commercial property, check that pipes and water meters are exposed to heat and circulating air in the building and are not closed off behind cabinets and doors. If there is no heat in the building, contact us to have the water shut off to the building.

Here are tips to help you keep your pipes and water meter from freezing.

Keep inside temperatures above 32°

•Make sure the interior temperature of your home or building AND the basement never drops below 32° F.

•Tightly close doors and windows to the outside. Fill cracks in walls and around windows.

•Eliminate cold drafts near water pipes and the water meter.

•Install storm windows on basement windows.

•Close up crawl spaces to eliminate drafts.

•Make sure to turn off the water to garden hose connections at an interior valve and drain the exposed piping.

•Protect Your Pipes and Meters

It is colder near the floor and along the walls of a basement than at the ceiling, so make sure warm air is allowed to circulate around water pipes and the water meter. The pipes most likely to freeze are nearest a wall, door, window, and along the floor.

•Wrap pipes with insulation or heat tape.

•Open the doors to the rooms where the pipes and water meter are located to allow warm air to circulate around them.

•If your kitchen or bathroom sink is located against an outside wall, insulate the wall to prevent pipes from freezing.

•Open the cabinet doors below sinks to allow warm air to circulate around the pipes.

•You may choose to let a trickle of water run from a faucet such as a laundry sink, as moving water in pipes helps to prevent freezing. Make sure the sink drain is not clogged. While you would be charged for the additional water use, the charge will be lower compared to the cost to you to repair a frozen or burst pipe.

•If the water meter is in an outdoor pit, check to see that the pit cover fits properly and there are no cracks into which cold wind could blow. The pipes, valves, and the water meter inside such pits should not touch the concrete walls.

Snow and Ice Control Operations

Snow and Ice Control Operations for the upcoming weekend of Dec. 11-12, 2020 as of Dec 11, 2020 at 10 am

Current Conditions: 42° Rain and windy.

Forecast: Windy and rain tonight mixing with snow overnight into Saturday. Possible all snow by Saturday afternoon into the evening. The range of snow totals currently is 0”-6 “. The lake water temperature is 48° and with Northeast winds, may lessen the amount of snow near the lake. Pavement temperatures are near 40° which if they hold, will help to melt much of the snow. All this is to say that we just don’t know when the rain will change to snow, how much we will get, and how much will accumulate on the pavement.

The Plan: We are monitoring weather forecasts carefully. Staff is scheduled to drive and monitor road conditions overnight. All trucks have been prepared and started to ensure they are ready to roll. All drivers and support staff have been notified of possible call outs for tonight overnight and into tomorrow as needed. If a General Ice Control ( GIC) Operations is called we will have 103 salt trucks on the road.

Covid-19 precautions have been established and are in place to provide for social distancing and limiting person to person contact during operations. Cleaning supplies and hand sanitizers are stationed for use and masks are required unless the driver is alone in their vehicle.

Parking: No impact expected.

Winter parking regulations began December 1, with no parking 2 am – 6 am on through highways and bus routes. Posted signs take precedence, such as streets posted No Parking Dec 1- Mar 1. We encourage those that park on the street to sign up for E –Notify and text messaging at milwaukee.gov/parking.

Snow and Ice Control Operations

Snow and Ice Control Operations for the upcoming weekend of Dec. 11-12, 2020 as of Dec 9, 2020 at 1 pm

Current Conditions: Sunny and 53 degrees. Pavement temperatures range from mid to high 50’s.

Forecast: Possible snow this weekend. Forecasts seem to be shaping up for mild rain turning to snow Friday evening into Saturday. The range of snow totals currently is 1-3” to 2-6 “ Unsure how much will actually accumulate on the pavement.

The Plan: To be on the safe side, we will be conducting an anti-icing operation tomorrow. You may see our 6 tanker trucks and several hybrid salt trucks applying salt brine to the pavement on all bridges, over passes and arterial streets. The brine will dry as white strips on the road ways and provide deicing properties for freezing precipitation. In addition, we are actively monitoring changing weather forecasts, starting all of the salt trucks in advance to ensure they are ready to roll and preparing our drivers and support staff.

Covid-19 precautions have been established and are in place to provide for social distancing and limiting person to person contact during operations. Cleaning supplies and hand sanitizers are stationed for use and mask are required unless the driver is alone in their vehicle.

About Nikiya Dodd

“I will continue to work hard to earn your trust in improving our neighborhoods, delivering efficient city services to all, and working together to keep our neighborhoods safe. That is my pledge to you.”

Meet Nikiya

As Alderwoman, with only 12 months in office, Nikiya sponsored legislation to add over 200 jobs to the 5th Aldermanic District by rezoning underutilized land for the development of a 325,000 square-foot building and future property tax revenue to the City. Alderwoman Dodd also sponsored a resolution urging the Wisconsin State Legislature to allow the City to extend benefits to those in domestic partnerships.

Nikiya hosted the inaugural, day-long tour for neighbors, investors, and community members to Explore the 5th District. Explore 5th District tour is a first of its kind to showcase vibrant neighborhoods, parks, and schools, thriving restaurants, and historical sites, as well as opportunities for business growth and development and homeownership on Milwaukee’s Northwest Side.
