A map of the affected area stretches from Southridge Avenue south of St. Anthony Crescent to the St. Denis Heights area. A yellow arrow points to the break site at 7051 Southridge Avenue.


The area surrounding the main, built in 1992, will be excavated to allow crews to access the break. Motorists are asked to use an alternate route, although local single-alternating traffic will be permitted.

Residents can prepare for the outage by filling pots and jugs with water for cooking and drinking and filling bathtubs with water for flushing the toilet with a bucket. A toilet will flush when approximately four litres of water is poured into the bowl. The City would like to thank area residents for their patience and understanding while crews work to repair the water main.
