Expect more breaks, with the weather we have been having. The alternating freeze-thaw cycles wreak havoc on water mains.

Furthermore, the water department is still working out of one of the old buildings so that would explain why the pipe broke. Did you see the main break in Montreal last week? They must have a real old work centre.

Jeeze Snowdon. Imagine if you had a 50 year old building to work in right now that wasn't up to standards. I'm sure you'd be wanting a new place to perform your work in. Assuming that you do work of course.

Don't criticize decisions until you know the reasoning for those decisions. Read some facts. Enough of the bandwagoning.

Should have thought of that when they replaced with new pipes in summer, old ones would break when connected Hello?

Thank you very much PUC for working so hard all day to fix our water pipes.

Your hard work is greatly appreciated.
