G.R. Pearkes Recreation Centre closed until further notice due to flood

August 23, 2019

Due to a broken water pipe in the mechanical room of the Saanich Centennial Library, G.R. Pearkes Recreation Centre experienced a large scale flood overnight. The entire facility will remain closed until further notice.

The water supply to the building has been shut off and crews are working onsite to assess the damage. Remediation assessments will take place in the Saanich Archives as soon as possible. The extent of any damage is unknown at this point. 

The library branch will be closed and assessed independently – a lengthy closure is anticipated. Members of the public are encouraged to visit an alternate GVPL location at Uptown (Emily Carr Branch).

We will share more information as soon as it becomes available.
