Frozen pipes on Eastern a concern

Residents in a four-block stretch of Eastern Avenue were asked by Plymouth Utilities to keep their water running during the recent cold snap, Public Works Director William Immich told the City Council Tuesday.

“The only people in Plymouth who have to run their water all the time live on Eastern Avenue and they’ve been notified,” Immich stated, responding to items on Milwaukee television news that the run water notice was for the entire city of Plymouth.

“This time it was about 30 houses on Eastern Avenue from Collins to Bishop streets. Plymouth Utilities will pay the additional costs for those we tell to keep their water running,” Immich added.

The concern is that ground frost has extended down five to six feet, which is close to the depth of water laterals in that stretch of Eastern Avenue, he said.

Immich said if residents anywhere in the city turn their water on and it doesn’t work, they should call Plymouth Utilities immediately.

“Don’t hire a plumber to do this work and expect Plymouth Utilities to pay for it. We’re required by the Public Service Commission to provide this service to our customers,” Immich concluded.
