A small leak has been identified in the sewer line near the parking area at the bottom of Goose Spit stairs. A contractor has been brought in to conduct a repair and will begin excavating the area today. While there is no threat to public safety or the environment, parking and access to Goose Spit will be impacted by the repair.

The leak was identified on April 23, when wastewater was observed near the parking area at the bottom of Goose Spit stairs. The leak was confirmed to be from the recently installed HMCS Quadra forcemain.
