Draining of Jones Lake to repair spillway


June 10, 2013

MONCTON – The City of Moncton wishes to advise residents that Jones Lake will be drained on Tuesday, June 11, 2013 to allow for repair operations on the spillway.

These repairs stem from the detection of sinkholes behind the headwall. The lake will be drained to allow crews to safely conduct the repairs.

An area near Givan Drive (between the trail and the spillway) has been barricaded and is closed to the public.

The City of Moncton apologizes for any inconveniences and thanks residents for their cooperation in this matter.
