Enbridge Gas has reconnected the gaslines for all but four of the residents in Blackburn Hamlet after the area was hit by a twin gas main and water pipe break early Friday.

About 550 customers were affected by the gas outage after an Enbridge contractor hit a gas line, Innes ward Coun. Laura Dudas said.

By Saturday shortly before midnight, all but four residents had service restored, said a spokesperson for Enbridge.

That incident also forced the city to stop work on a water valve, which meant 60 to 70 residents lost that service and were on a boil-water advisory, which has now been lifted.
