Port McNeill Mine Road’s significant water leak fixed

Port McNeill Mayor Shirley Ackland publicly thanked residents for bringing their concerns forward.

The significant water leak on Mine Road in Port McNeill isn’t so significant anymore, thanks to Public Works Foreman Julian Allen and his crew.

Back in August, concerned Port McNeill residents contacted the Gazette about a large pool of water that was growing in size in front of the entrance to Pioneer Place, near the Petro Canada.

Allen had previously told the Gazette the isolation valve off the water main that feeds the hydrant was causing the issue, and he had it scheduled for repair in September.

Allen confirmed at Port McNeill’s council meeting Oct. 4 that the valve had been fixed, the town had been saved $1,200 on the project, and the water leak was no more.

Port McNeill Mayor Shirley Ackland publicly thanked the residents for bringing their concerns forward about the issue.
