Crews respond to a fire hydrant struck outside Skeena Mall on Lakelse Ave.

Water has been turned off and hydrant is out until further notice

Snow and icy roads were not the only fixes city crew tended to this morning (Jan. 20) after a 10 foot geyser erupted on Lakelse Ave. due to a fire hydrant believed to have been struck by a vehicle.

City of Terrace’s public works department was alerted about the leaking fire hydrant on the sidewalk outside Skeena Mall at 8:30 a.m. this morning.

The crew found the hydrant at a 45 degree angle and went on to separate it from the main water line at approximately 8:45 a.m. this morning, said Ben Reinbolt, public works manager for the City of Terrace.

The Terrace Fire Department was also present on scene directing traffic and helped with opening the storm drain.

The water has been shut off and the fire department has been notified the hydrant is out, said Reinbolt.
