Water main break causes closures on 2nd Ave…

PRINCE GEORGE, BC: Please be advised that 2nd Avenue between George Street and Dominion Street has been closed to traffic as crews deal with a water main break…

A 15cm cast-iron main installed in 1967 burst this morning near the alley behind the District Energy Distribution Centre. At this time, Surplus Herbie’s and the Lheidli T’enneh Economic Development Office are without water. Crews are working to fix the broken main and restore water to these buildings.

The City expects the operation to take at least until the end of the day today due in part to the many pipes running adjacent to the burst main from the District Energy Distribution Centre, which currently heats many key buildings in downtown Prince George including:

City Hall
The RCMP Building
The Law Courts
The Prince George Public Library
The Prince George Conference and Civic Centre
The Four Seasons Pool
The Wood Innovation and Design Centre
The Two Rivers Art Gallery
Plaza 400
