Town of Fort Frances emergency update

The Town of Fort Frances Municipal Emergency Control Group has met the morning of April 24, and wants to thank the residents for their continued support in minimizing their water usage. This in coordination with operations staff’s efforts has allowed the sanitary system to catch up. The storm system is still at high levels and water is moving but it will take time for the system to catch up.

With this said, we are still not out of this situation and continue to ask residents to minimize their water usage for the time being. Weather forecasts remain the same. Therefore, it is imperative for residents to ensure that their sump pumps are not connected to the sanitary sewer.

We thank you for your patience and understanding and would like you to be reassured that we will continue to monitor the situation and work to keep the public informed through 93.1 The Border and our Town of Fort Frances Facebook and Twitter pages.
