Update – Water Leak

 The municipality wishes to inform the residents that the water leak is now repaired. The water service will be re-established throughout the distribution system within minutes.

The leak was located in the conduit of a fire hydrant at the intersection of 8th and Edward streets. Repairing the water leak has caused considerable damage to Edward Street and the sidewalk on the south side and we are asking motorists and pedestrians to avoid this area as much as possible. Residents of this area are also urged to act with caution on this route.

A boil water advisory is still in effect until further notice.

The Town of Hearst will reinstate all municipal services beginning Thursday, February 7, at regular hours.

The municipality would like to thank the residents for their patience as well as all the team involved in the repair of the leak and the management of the emergency.
