The Big Melt is Coming

Environment Canada is predicting double-digit temperatures in Heritage Lake, starting next week. This weekend, they predict +5C with sunny conditions. After all this snow, and warm temperatures just around the corner, a quick melt is anticipated! Please brace yourself for the wet conditions:

  • Shovel snow away from your home’s foundation and window wells

  • If moving or piling snow, ensure snow and ice are not blocking furnace and exhaust vents to prevent carbon monoxide buildup

  • Ensure downspouts (eavestroughs) are clear and pointed away from your home/foundation

  • Once melting begins and storm drains are visible, clear snow away

  • Clean sidewalks in front of your home to minimize ice build-up. You can be held liable if someone slips and falls!

  • Keep the fire hydrant on your property clear of snow

  • Check the function of your sump pump

  • Clean out your back flow prevention valve, which should be cleaned every six-months
