Water main breaks are often repaired under positive pressure to prevent boil orders sometimes leading to localized low water pressure and turbid (dirty) water. In some cases, water has to be completely shut off in order to do the repair often leading to localized boil orders, in this case The Provincial Department of Health is involved implementing and rescinding a boil water order.  All repairs are done as soon as possible.

 The time it takes to fix a break varies due to several factors including digging in frozen ground, frost depth, how quickly the break can be located, the size of the break and the current weather conditions.
