Street, tap water affected by Charleswood water-main break

  • Print

There's still plenty of ice in one area of Charleswood this morning after  a series of water main breaks Sunday evening.

The largest occurred about 5:30 p.m. on Laxdal Road, and water quickly spread water from Brittany Drive to Ridgewood Avenue. Water was ankle deep in some spots, residents said.

There were no evacuations from the area.

Water crews shut down the water main to regain control of the situation, while the public works department sanded the icy street.

Some Charleswood residents then reported seeing brown water spouting from their taps, likely a result of sediment build-up is happened when the city re-started the water-main system.
