Residents in the Rideout, Minto and Pinecrest areas may have reduced water pressure today after a water main was struck by a resident on private property.

The City of Kenora says residents north of the Canadian Pacific Railway may have experienced a brief service outage at 11:20 a.m. after the incident, and crews are onsite to assess the damage.

The city is reminding the public that anyone completing in-ground work of any kind must contact Ontario One Call at or 1-800-400-2255 to receive locations of services on their property, and for advice on safe excavation and digging procedures.
