Watermain breaks now repaired, water service restored

Friday, July 29, 2022

(Barrie, ON) The watermain breaks on Little Avenue and Murray Street are now repaired and water service has been restored in both areas.

ffected residents may find that their water is discoloured as it’s restored; this is normal. Residents should flow cold water through a bathtub until it’s clear. 

Homes affected by today’s water outage are asked to check in and around their water meter for leaks, as pressure spikes may have occurred which can cause leaks. If you find a leak, please call Water Operations at 705-792-7920.

Murray Street has reopened to traffic and Little Avenue will reopen by 8 p.m. Barrie Transit Route 1 service will be restored shortly.
