When risk factors are high

When environmental risk factors for water services freezing are high, and if your property has a history of municipal service lines freezing, we will visit your home to provide information on what to do next. If our records indicate that the water service line at your address has a history of freezing, you can look for a notice on your door.

Monitor local media for ‘run water advisories’ and other helpful information.
