The third citizen resource centre for residents with frozen pipes opened in Winnipeg on Thursday.

Elmwood Kildonans Pool at 909 Concordia Avenue will serve those living in the east part of the city. Other previously opened locations include the Cindy Klassen Recreation Complex and Fort Rouge Leisure Centre.

Residents with frozen pipes and no running water can attend any of the centres to refill drinking water containers, access information, personal comfort kits, cleaning kits and civic shower facilities.

Elmwood Kildonans Pool will be open Monday-Friday from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The city is also asking citizens with temporary hose lines to insulate the exterior of the lines on both the supplying and receiving end with a towel. Cold temperatures overnight and into this weekend may cause some lines to freeze up.
