All of the Manitobans who lost natural gas service after a pipeline exploded on Saturday will have their service back on by the end of the day today.

Manitoba Hydro, in a statement, said about 95 per cent of the 3,600 customers who lost service have now been visited by a utility worker, with the rest expected to be completed this afternoon.

While Hydro says their staffing of the TransCanada/Manitoba Hydro Customer Information Centre (CIC) in Niverville will end at 7 p.m., the centre will continue to be staffed from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. until further notice by TransCanada Pipelines staff. Anyone with questions about expenses to be reimbursed can call TransCanada at 1-855-895-8754 or email community_relations@transcanada.com
