Taps running in Newfoundland community after two weeks without water
Sunday, March 23, 2014, 5:45 PM -
Taps are finally running again after two weeks without water in a small community on Newfoundland and Labrador's northern peninsula.
Pigeon Cove's new $800,000 water system has been frozen for about two weeks, causing the region to declare a state of emergency and prompting businesses to shut their doors.
Provincial Municipal Affairs Minister Steve Kent says the main line is now functioning, however some individual lines are still frozen.
The government is providing proper equipment to help thaw the frozen water lines.
