Hundreds of Toronto homeowners still getting water through highlines

There are hundreds of Toronto homeowners who are still borrowing water from their neighbours in the aftermath of a deep freeze that hit the city last month.

From mid-February onward, the city has received more than 4,000 calls related to frozen pipes.

The city has used so-called highlines — temporary connections to a neighbouring property — to get water service restored to homes on a temporary basis.

As of Monday, the city said that some 829 properties were still receiving water through a highline.
