Canada Coast Guard will be removing unused and inactive submarine cables from the Victoria Harbour next week. The cables that will be removed run from Fisherman’s Wharf to Pelly Island and from Fisherman’s Wharf to Shoal Pt and then across to Berens Island. Work will be conducted overnight, commencing at 1900 on Monday, March 26th and ending at 0700 on Tuesday, March 27th. It is expected that the cable from Berens Island to Shoal Point will be removed first, and then the cable from Shoal Point to Fisherman’s Wharf and finally the cable from Fisherman’s Wharf to Pelly Island.
If needed to complete the work, another overnight shift will take place on March 27th – March 28th.
This work will be conducted using both a barge and divers. NOTSHIP will be disseminated by CCG. A diagram of the working location is attached.
