Crews work at making repairs to line at 2nd and Victoria – photo 250News
Prince George, B.C.- It will be the spring before an issue with a water main at 2nd and Victoria Street in Prince George can be dealt with on a more permanent basis.The water main at that location broke and City crews were on scene first thing this morning .
While a valve was installed to ensure businesses and residences in the area continue to get water, the location of the break means the Ministry of Transportation will have to be involved before a complete repair can be done.
“Because it’s ( Victoria Street) a Provincial highway, there is a process that must be followed to arrange any highway closure” says the City’s Director of Utilities, Gina Layte-Liston. She says there are a number of utilities in the area which need to be considered before the long term repair can be done.
