Residents of four apartment units at 60 Selkirk St. have been moved to hotels or other Yukon Housing Corp. units after a pipe burst in one of the eight unit buildings at the Riverdale site.
Corporation spokeswoman Sarah Murray said Monday afternoon water from the burst pipe flooded the four units on the main floor of the eight-unit apartment building last Friday evening.
Work has continued to be done on-site to assess the cause and repairs needed. That assessment will determine the timelines to fix the issue.
In the meantime, residents who need accommodation have been provided with places to stay.
“They will continue to be accommodated,” Murray said.
It is up to individual tenants, though, to deal with any water damage to personal belongings.
They must either replace or repair them, either through their insurance or by paying for it themselves.
As Murray explained, Yukon Housing encourages all of its tenants to have tenant’s insurance to cover their belongings.
