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
