The City of Prince Rupert facing an escalation of water main and water service breaks in the last week has declared a Local State of Emergency, the Mayor and Council meeting in an Emergency Session on Saturday to make the declaration.
In an information release this evening Mayor Herb Pond outlined what that means for the public
“We don’t want to alarm the community, and are working to manage the situation as best we can to ensure continuity in our water service. “Calling a State of Local Emergency allows the City to call in the additional capacity and resources required to manage this situation.”
