ALPENA - United Water is in the process of changing out old water meters on Alpena's north side, but it is having a difficult time scheduling appointments with many residents to have the replacements made. In order to motivate them, Alpena Municipal Council voted 5-0 to allow the company to shut off water in homes where people aren't complying with requests made via letter, phone calls and visits. Besides an interruption of service, the customer could also face a $40 charge for the shutoff and the reconnect.
