NOTICE: Arena Ice Cancellations

Posted on December 6, 2017 · Posted in Public Notices

Please be aware that as of December 6th, 2017 the Arena Ice at the Michipicoten Memorial Community Center will be unavailable until further notice.

This is due to issues with the Olympia Ice Resurfacer creating an unsafe level of Carbon Monoxide gas. Staff have been monitoring the situation closely over the past two weeks and did not detect any significant exposure in the Arena. Staff have detected the unsafe levels of CO within confinement and have determined that operations cannot continue without putting staff and members of the public at risk.

The Municipality of Wawa considers this a very serious issue and does not take risks when it comes to public or employee safety.

Staff are working to correct this issue as soon as possible to ensure that operations can resume at the MMCC.

We apologize for the inconvenience and thank the community for your patience and understanding in this matter.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Department of Community Services and Tourism.

Alex Patterson,
Director of Community Services and Tourism
Municipality of Wawa
