SASKATOON, SASK. - Winter weather is causing the City of Saskatoon some headaches this month.
Cold cracks Saskatoon pipes

The city is repairing multiple locations where watermain pipes have cracked due to a sudden drop in temperature.

"As the ground freezes, the frost can disrupt underground utilities. Regardless of the age of the pipes — new or old — frost can cause the ground to shift and this slight movement can cause a pipe to crack and leak water," says Russ Munro, director of water and waste stream.
