Water main and water pipe breaks

Public works are able to fix water main breaks within four to eight hours in cases of emergency. Water main breaks are a priority situation for the City of Huntingdon, and response teams are ready 24/7 to control and redress the situation.

To perform repairs, the exact location of the problem must be located in order to operate the valves to isolate the leak. This entails a temporary stoppage of water supply in the sector concerned.

In the event that a leak is due to problems with a private water main, the owner is notified of the repair, which is to be done at the owner’s expense and within a limited time.
