Watermain break

TH Water Main Break August

On the afternoon of Saturday, August 7, around 4:00 pm, the Town experienced a watermain break across from the IGA, in front of the Harvest House restaurant. This water break was in the same vicinity as a recent sanitary service repair completed in the winter of 2020/21.

The 200mm cast iron watermain blew a hole out the bottom of the pipe, which contributed to a crack on either side of the hole approximately 7 ft long. With the quick action of a community resident phoning in the water break, the utility department was able to shut down the watermain. A local contractor (Beaumack Solutions) was able to mob their equipment immediately onsite. Between the Utility staff and the contractor, the water was turned back on before midnight. The area was cleaned up by 4:00 am with very little disruption to local businesses. Great Job everyone and Thank You to local businesses for their understanding of the situation.
