Watermains breaking in the cold

A Saint John neighborhood spent much of Saturday without water after a significant water main break.

Saint John Water said the break occurred at the intersection of Hickey Road and Heather Way. A number of nearby streets and residences were affected. Repairs wrapped up and residents in the area were advised to run their taps to flush out the pipes before resuming consumption.
Meanwhile the boil order was finally lifted for another East Side neighbourhood after a water main break last Wednesday. It was lifted Saturday night and residents were told to turn their taps on for a few minutes to help flush out the pipes.
