Residents are advised that with the recent fluctuations in temperature, water is sometimes running on our streets and sidewalks, ground is softening and asphalt is breaking apart.
Drivers are asked to exercise caution when driving through areas of accumulated water because of the possibility of concealed pot holes and to avoid splashing pedestrians who may be walking nearby.
To report an unmarked pot hole, please notify the Public Works Depot by telephone at 651-5938, or submit an online service request here.
Thank you for your assistance and cooperation.

The Town of Gander advises residents that the systematic flushing of all main water lines will be conducted through April and May, taking place from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. The purpose of this flushing is to ensure the highest possible quality of water throughout the distribution system.
This process will additionally include injection of a bio-purge agent to remove any accumulated film within the distribution system. The agent is approved by Health Canada and the Canada Food Inspection Agency and water will remain safe to drink at all times.
As with each routine flushing, however, residents may experience fluctuating water pressure, discolouration or debris in the water lines. If this occurs, run the water until clear, then remove faucet aerators and carefully flush any debris from screens and washers, ensuring that all parts are reassembled in the correct order and orientation.
It is not recommended to wash laundry between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. to avoid the possibility of staining.

The Town of Gander reminds residents that Garbage and Refuse Regulations require that household garbage be placed at the concrete curb no earlier than 6 a.m. and no later than 8 a.m. on your scheduled collection day. Household waste must be separated into two streams, with all recyclables placed in transparent blue bags and non-recyclable waste in transparent clear bags.
A limit of six (6) bags per household will be accepted on each scheduled collection day. Empty containers and any garbage/refuse not collected under these regulations must be removed from the curb before 8:30 p.m. the same day.
Please heed the following guidelines for safe disposal of hazardous items:
• Needles must be in a container such as steel or heavy plastic that will prevent accidental puncture to those collecting it.
• Broken glass should be placed in a separate container and marked as such.
• Hot coals/ashes must not be put out for collection.
