Busy Winter For Town Crews

It's been a tough winter on the infrastructure in the town of Fort Frances.

Operations Manager Doug Brown says the number of frozen water lines and cracked water and sewer pipes his crews have had to deal with is the worst he's seen.

Crews have helped thaw more than 250 water lines while digging up another 30 areas to repair cracked pipes.

Brown says he doesn't see an end to the work until there's a significant shift toward warmer weather.
