Lindsay, Fenelon Falls and Bobcaygeon residents asked to leave water running

Filed under: ,
April 2, 2015 - In pursuance to the News Release March 27, 2015, the City is kindly requesting residents in the identified affected areas to continue running their taps for an extended one-week period.

As previously requested, residents are asked to please ensure a cold water tap (basement if possible), is turned on at a flow the diameter of a pencil (or 1/4” stream) and is left running until further notice.

Although the air temperatures are slowly warming, we continue to experience cold days and nights where the temperature in the ground remains well into the minus 20-30 degrees Celsius range. During the transition to warmer weather, the frost is driven deeper into the ground resulting in a continued risk of freezing service lines. It is due to this risk that this program is being continued. At the end of the one-week period, the City will again re-evaluate and updated information will be provided.

If your line is frozen, it is imperative that you call a local plumbing contractor right away as the longer you wait the firmer the ice can set in and cause potential damage.

If you would like more information on dealing with frozen water lines or safeguarding your property, please contact the City of Kawartha Lakes Call Center at (705) 324-9411.

For further information regarding this press release, please contact David Kerr, Manager – Environmental Services at (705) 324-9411 ext. 1118 or at dkerr@city.kawarthalakes.on.ca
