Nine more properties are being added to the list of places SaskEnergy has had to permanently cut natural gas service. Excess moisture continues to cause ground shifting at Shore Acres along Last Mountain Lake and South Lake at Buffalo Pound. The Crown’s Dave Burdeniuk says there are a few telltale signs people with lake shore properties can watch for if they suspect ground shifting. Things like cracking in your driveway or in the street. A lot of heaving in the home foundation is another sign. He says if you see things like that you should give SaskEnergy a call and they can check it out. Burdeniuk adds if you smell natural gas to always call them immediately. Seven of the nine properties are at South Lake with the remaining two at Shore Acres. $2,500 will be given to affected customers who need to switch fuel sources and appliances.
