Notice - Water Service Freezing Prevention

For all residents connected to the Wingham Municipal Water System:

Due to the on-going cold temperatures and the depth of frost, it is critical one cold water tap per building be run at all times at the approximate size of a pencil until further notice. 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 owner’s expense. If unsuccessful in thawing the line, it may result in an extended period of no water service. Water billings will be adjusted to account for the additional consumption.
