Asbestos caution tape is being used to block off the area around a water main break on Seville Road in Prince Rupert —because that was the only caution tape available at the time.
The water main break happened on BC Housing property, managed by M’akola Housing Society, June 11.
While some people may be alarmed to see the yellow “caution asbestos hazard” – Don Lennon, general manager of Saanich Plumbing and Heating Ltd., said it was the caution tape M’akola Housing Society had on hand.
“A compression fitting slipped off the pipe,” Lennon said, on the break, but confirmed it’s not an asbestos issue.
