Prevent the Possibility of Freeze Ups

Residents and businesses on the piped water system in Hay River, please be advised that the Town is experiencing an unusual amount of water line freeze ups due to deeper than normal ground frost levels. Public Works is working with local contractors to ensure that service is returned as quickly as possible. These issues will likely continue as we move through spring.  To prevent the possibility of freeze ups a good practice of running your cold water tap for 2-3 minutes throughout the day will help. Also if you plan on being out of town or on vacation advise anyone checking on your homes to do the same daily.
