Frozen Water Services?

Due to the extreme cold temperatures, Public Works continues to be alerted with a higher than usual number of frozen water lines within resident’s basements. Water services are the lines that run from the City watermain to properties. The City is responsible for water services up to the property line. Due to insufficient heat in basements or crawl spaces, water lines have a tendency to freeze when exposed to consistent temperatures below freezing.

To help prevent your water line from freezing, take the following precautions:

  • Ensure that you provide sufficient heat in basements or crawl spaces.
  • Insulate lines close to outside walls with a number of different products available for this purpose.
  • Keeping a tap running with low flow may also assist susceptible properties and preventing water lines from freezing.

For assistance and more information please call Public Works at 905 735-1700 Ext. 3000
