The city of Regina is continuing to deal with a high number of water main breaks thanks to ground shifting.
Director of Water Works, Pat Wilson said they are continuing to see between seven to ten breaks per day.
“We are constantly evaluating and moving to the highest priority breaks, crews are working overtime and on weekends. Residents are also a big part of the success, we’d like to thank you for keeping us informed,” Wilson said to reporters on Friday.
Wilson added they have seen 40 new breaks reported in September, saying the record amount for one month was 115, in August the city saw 112 breaks.
The city is expecting to see the high number of breaks continue for at least a few more weeks, but anticipates no major budget impacts because of this.
If you suspect a water main break in your area Wilson encourages residents to call 777-7000.
“Yes call 777-7000 if your house has no running water, if there’s a new leak or you see changes to an existing leak,” said Wilson.
