Break in the Weather allows for more work on water main break on Fulton

City workers continue on with with their prep work at the corner
of Fulton and Sixth West, over the weekend crews  attended to a watermain issue

With the rains of the last few days finally giving way to an occasionally sunny sky today, City of Prince Rupert work crews were back to work at the corner of Fulton and Sixth Avenue West today.

The crews attended that same location over the weekend to address repairs  required due to an emergency water main repair at the corner, with much of the work taking place through Sunday.

The water main issue was just the latest of the city's infrastructure woes as the aging waterlines suffer the rigours of the freeze and thaw times of winter into spring and other issues.

The most recent work on Fulton is but a few feet away from an extensive rebuild of the waterlines fourteen years ago.

More and more of late, city work crews are dispatched to a growing number of areas of the city as age catches up to the city's infrastructure.
