Underground frost levels are to a depth of approximately 4 ft, which creates concern for frozen water pipes.  The procedure for running water is to open one faucet to a pencil-lead size stream of cold water and allow that faucet to continue running throughout the duration of the Advisory.  

Per City policy, when you run water at your home or business you MUST notify the City's Utility Department at 231-592-4005 as usage above your average consumption will be adjusted from your utility bill.  Once you have called you do not need to call again, you are on the list until the advisory ends.

The City will post and distribute a notice when the Run Water Advisory has been lifted.
