We have received a couple of inquiries regarding water “let-runs” recently. As of today, we have about 36″ of frost in the ground. The shallowest water main in our system is 4′-5′ deep. Based on that, we will not be issuing any let-runs for some time (most likely not before mid-January.) One of the benefits of the upcoming water system replacement project is that the most troublesome areas for water system freezing will be corrected. Many people that have historically been placed on let-run will no longer need to worry about their water freezing annually.
Also note that as the temperatures start dropping, the property owner is required to ensure the space around the water meter remains protected from freezing. If your basement or crawl space is unheated, extra effort must be taken to avoid damage to the meter per Ordinance 12-100. Finally, if pipes freeze within the building, the City cannot assist with thawing those water lines. Typically, a hair dryer on low heat will work for those situations, but the longer the pipe remains frozen, the more chance there will be a leak as a result.
No credits will be issued for unauthorized let-runs, or for water loss due to an interior plumbing leak.
If you have any questions regarding this matter, please direct them to the Department of Public Works.

National Fire Prevention Month
Energizer Battery and the International Association of Fire Chiefs and the City of Ishpeming Fire Department are encouraging everyone to take time to make home safety a priority. On November 6, when you set your clock back for daylight saving time, use the extra hour to take a lifesaving action.
Did you know 71 percent of smoke alarms which failed to operate had missing, disconnected or dead batteries? A home with non-functional detectors is dangerous and puts lives at risk.
The city of Ishpeming Fire Department is giving out a limited number of 9Volt Energizer Batteries free of charge for use in smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. The 9Volt batteries will be available at the Ishpeming City Hall during regular business hours while supplies last.
Limit of 4 9Volt batteries per family. You do not have to be a resident of the city to receive the batteries.
