Residents in the west part of the Town of Kincardine are advised to keep a water tap running in their homes to avoid frozen water services.

Deputy mayor Anne Eadie brought up the issue at the council meeting last night (March 19).

A municipal notice has been issued by chief administrative officer Murray Clarke indicating that, based on the warming weather trend and the location pattern of freezing water services in the municipality, it appears that the imminent threat of water services freezing has passed for some areas. 

However, the potential remains for others.

A map attached to the notice highlights the area, west of Park Street in the Town of Kincardine, where residents are still encouraged to run a tap, until further notice.

Residents east and north of the highlighted area may discontinue running of a tap.

If you suspect your service may be freezing or has frozen, call the water department at 519-396-4660; after hours call the emergency line at 519-396-1511.
