Burst Pipes Affecting Businesses Across Fort McMurray

The recent cold temperatures are causing pipes across Fort McMurray to burst.

The lower level of the Morrison Centre is suffering some water damage after a pipe broke early in the new year, affecting multiple businesses including a couple of doctor offices.

Aurora Training was one of the harder hit businesses, suffering severe damage after water poured through their ceiling tiles.

“Most of the units on the lower level of the Morrison Centre had major damage but our’s is almost completely destroyed,” said Everett Dion, Co-Owner of Aurora Training.

Dion notes their entrance way, training area, and storage space were all affected resulting in most of their equipment being damaged.

ImageThe cost of the damage is unknown at this time as Dion says they are still in talks with their insurance company.

“This is something we were hoping would never happen to us.”

For the time being, Dion says they are looking for a temporary space to operate.

Meanwhile, the Morrison Centre isn’t the only building experiencing burst pipes. Stoneycreek Plaza and the River City Centre were reportedly facing similar circumstances.

Fort McMurray News did reach out to an affected business but received no response.

In an email, the municipality notes they’ve yet to receive any calls about these pipe situations, however, they are prepared to assist or respond to any such issue if needed.
