It's the older parts of the city being hit the hardest. I'm in a medium age neighbourhood and so far we've been fortunate. There was a break a couple days ago two streets over, but nothing serious has affected me yet (the occasional brown/silt in the water, but nothing affecting us for more than an hour tops). The central areas are getting hit hardest. Over 900 water main breaks so far, both city and residential lines. We'll probably hit 1000 by the end of the week.
Ironically, the (very slow) spring thaw is actually making things worse since the water seeping down chills the ground faster, so the rate of pipe ruptures is actually going to increase .
I'm actually just about to head out to buy some water jugs in case we lose our water.
