Some residents in Gravenhurst will need to shut off their water lines today.

The District of Muskoka is repairing lines in the area of Jones Road, Industrial Drive, Forest Glenn Drive and Progress Road. District officials are suggesting you shut off the cold water valve at the meter coming into your home.

If you have an electric heater, you’re advised to flip the breaker giving power to the tank to stop the elements from burning out. If you have a gas-heated tank officials say you should turn off the water into the tank, but don’t shut off the gas.

The district will be shutting off the water at 8:30am and it likely won’t be running until about 5:00pm this afternoon.

If you need help turning off your water supply or your tanks you can contact the district at 705-645-6764.
