Mould problem almost fully addressed; arena due to reopen this month

After a year without the use of the community arena, residents in Cambridge Bay will soon have access to the facility again.

Work to remediate the mould issue at the Cambridge Bay arena should be complete by Oct. 19, according to the GN.

The contractor's work to remove and cover up a growing mould problem should be finished by Oct. 19, according to Tim Brown, director of community infrastructure with the Department of Community and Government Services.

"The scope of work is being completed as originally planned. However, after removal of damaged material in some areas, additional mould-infested material was discovered, which will be required to be removed and replaced," Brown stated.

Cambridge Bay's Qillaq Construction was hired in early August to undertake the work for $257,000, but the final cost won't be known until the project is completed, Brown added.
