Ventilation, remediation has been underway since leak discovered on Christmas Eve

Sivuniit Middle School in Igloolik is on track to reopen by early next week, a GN spokesperson says, after a fuel leak shuttered the school on Christmas Eve.

A fuel spill was discovered in the mechanical room of the school on the evening of Dec. 24 during a building check, Community and Government Services Department spokesperson Hala Duale said.

“The cause of the spill was a malfunctioning float which allowed the pump to overfill the tank,” Duale said.

The current estimate of the spill is approximately 1,200 litres, but local staff are doing further assessment to confirm, she said.
