9. City touts plan for frozen pipes
Winnipeg Free Press
Nov. 27, 2014: Water and waste staff are vowing to avoid a repeat of last winter's frozen pipe debacle, regardless of how cold it gets. Unlike last winter, when the city was caught flat-footed by unusual cold, the city will monitor frost depth this winter. If frost begins to penetrate toward the level of water pipes, owners of properties deemed at risk of frozen lines will be told to begin running taps well ahead of time, said Tim Shanks, the water and waste department's water-distribution manager.
