The number of properties in Winnipeg on the waiting list for thawing services has declined for the second day in a row.

City hall says there are now 1,358 properties on the waiting list, a drop of 11 from Tuesday.

But, the number of properties reporting frozen lines continues to increase.

Another 10 properties were without water between Tuesday and Wednesday, bringing the total since November to 2,434.

City hall was able to restore full water services to 21 more properties between Tuesday and Wednesday, and provided temporary services with a hose connection to another 16 properties.

The city also warned another 64 property owners today that their water line is at risk of freezing.

The owners were advised to leave a cold water tap running 24/7 as a preventative measure.

A total of 7,320 properties have now been advised they are at risk and to take this step to prevent the City’s portion of the water line from freezing.
