The Meltdown Has Begun!

The warm weather of the last few days have started the meltdown we've all been waiting for. There's a lot of snow out there, which means they'll be a lot of meltwater to deal with.

The older part of our village is almost completely flat. Water has trouble exiting the village, especially between the CN tracks and the old CP line.

By my count, we have about eight problem areas throughout the village. Public Works will spend as much time as needed getting the water out of town!

Through the years the village has improved its drainage and storm water pumping systems. Once all the channels, culverts, ditches, and canals are thawed out and free-flowing our spring melt should continue with little inconvenience.

If you are one of those with a small lake in front of your house or in your lane, be patient, Public Works will get to it as soon as they can.
