Notice - Water Service Freezing Prevention

For all residents connected to the Wingham Municipal Water System: Due to the unprecedented number of frozen water services this year and the potential of even deeper frost penetration during the initial stages of the spring thaw, it is critical one cold water tap per building be run at all times at the approximate size of a pencil until further notice but is expected to continue until the end of March. Failure to run a tap will result in loss of water service due to freezing. If frozen, the cost to attempt to thaw the service will be at the property owners expense at time and material. If unsuccessful in thawing service, it may result in an extended period of no water service. Water billings will be normalized to account for the additional consumption.
