The march of time is having no effect on Winnipeg’s frozen water line situation.

Another 15 properties were left without water this week and more than 40 in the past two weeks.

New numbers released by the City of Winnipeg this afternoon puts the number of properties affected by frozen water lines since November at 2,577, an increase from the 2,562 reported on Tuesday.

The number of properties on the waiting list for thawing services continues to decline. There remain 103 properties without water service, with another 572 properties still receiving water through a temporary hose connection to a neighbouring property.
