A suspected broken water main struck Fraser Street over the weekend, sending a current of excess water trickling down the road and into the sewers nearby.

While no residences or businesses immediately close to the area had been affected as of Monday morning, the City of Prince Rupert looked to address the issue as soon as possible.

“It might have busted with the age of the pipe,” said Prince Rupert public works official Garin Gardiner.

“We’re aware of it and we’re hoping to get there either [Monday] or [Tuesday].”

The main was just one of a few items that became problematic for the city, said Gardiner.

“We had a couple leak problems come up over the weekend, so it’s a priority,” he said.
