Keep your water line bleeders on

2019-03-06_Water bleeder

If your home or business has a water line bleeder, it should be running all winter long, even through warmer temperatures. Due to this year’s extreme cold snap, the current frost level is 3.1 metres deep. As the weather starts to get warmer, frost could drive further into the ground, increasing the risk of freezing water pipes. 

If your home does not have a bleeder, running a stream of water the size of a pencil from your tap has the same effect. Homes with a history of freeze-ups should have a water bleeder installed. 

If you are running a bleeder, please contact Janet Schmidt, Utilities Clerk, at 780-852-6505 to add your name to the list and ensure a credit is applied to your account. 

The cost of thawing frozen water lines is the responsibility of the property owner.
