WOW! Cable Users:
Is Your Government Access Channel Scrambled?

Not long ago, WOW! cable TV subscribers received a message explaining the need to order a digital adapter to ensure continued access to all digital channels.

Some residents who opted not to order this special adapter (and decided to stick with their basic service) have complained that their Government Access channel (channel 10) is now scrambled and no longer viewable.

If you experienced this problem, WOW technicians have instructed us that affected subscribers must run a channel scan on their TV set(s). This is done by accessing the "menu" selection on your TV set's remote and selecting "scan" (for more help, refer to the "channel scan" section of your TV set's instruction manual). This should eliminate the problem.

Residents Reminded to "Run Their Water" After Water Main Breaks

The City of Dearborn Heights has experienced a number of water main breaks over the past several weeks. In many cases, small amounts of rust coloration are released into the water supply as the repairs are being made. If you experience this discoloration in your water, you should simply run it for a short period (10-15 minutes) until the discoloration dissipates and your water appears clear again.Although not harmful if consumed, laundering white or light-colored fabrics in discolored water could result in rust-colored stains.
