City winterizing irrigation systems

North Bay, ON – October 18, 2016 – Over the next two weeks the City of North Bay will be winterizing its irrigation systems before winter sets in.  This will include the irrigation lines at several City parks and sports fields.

The process of winterizing the irrigation system involves blowing air through the irrigation lines to blast the excess water out through the sprinklers heads.  As a result people may notice large amounts of water coming out through the sprinkler heads.

The City is asking people to use caution as they walk through parks while this work is being conducted.

The City of North Bay is a city of 54,000 people situated between the shores of Lake Nipissing and Trout Lake. For information on City services and programs, North Bay residents, businesses and visitors can visit
