Residents in Kincheloe Need to Prevent Pipes from Freezing

A Chippewa County community is already being asked to run their water constantly until spring time to prevent freezing pipes. The Department of Public Works issued a run water advisory for Kincheloe. Besides the cold temperatures, a thin layer of snow isn't insulating the ground enough to prevent freezing. People in Kincheloe will not be charged extra for the water used during this time. The township supervisor says keep the water running in a stream the size of a pencil.
