Family posts sign pleading for help after two weeks without water | News
MUSKEGON HEIGHTS, Mich. (WZZM) -- After two weeks without running water, a lakeshore family has taken a creative way toward venting its frustration.
WZZM 13 first reported about Zach and Sheena Dirheimer's problem last week. They live in a home in Muskegon Heights with their three-year-old twins.
Its believed the pipe to their house is frozen solid and the water can't get through. Wednesday, Sheena posted a sign in front of her house counting the days without water. It reads: "13 days, no water and still counting! Muskegon Heights Water Department offers no help! My 3 yr. old twins ask me, "Why?" Can anyone help? Please?! Thank you. God bless WZZM 13 News for your effort."
The Dirheimer's are on a repair list now, but it's not known how long it might take to fix the problem. In the meantime, they continue to use bottled water, go to the bathroom at a nearby restaurant, and shower at relatives.
