The milder weather is having little impact on Winnipeg’s frozen water lines.
City hall said this afternoon that another 24 properties reported frozen water lines, bringing the total since November to 2,344.
The city was able to restore full water service to an additional 16 properties between Wednesday and today.
But the number of properties on the waiting list to be thawed still increased to 1,364, up from 1,356 reported Wednesday.
The situation is reflecting the scenario that city officials predicted in February: Even with warmer weather, the ground remains frozen and properties will be at risk to frozen water lines until late May or early June.
