The recent flood at the Pigutsavik Centre (Daycare) in Nain has forced an early closure.
Toby Andersen is the Acting Property Manager for the Nunatsiavut Government.
Andersen says as of May 27th the Daycare is officially closed for the summer.
Engineers were flown in to determine the severity of the damage.
The conclusion is that the flooring of the building had shifted, causing the waterlines to bust.
Andersen says that the Department of Health and Social Development (DHSD) will not know the details until a final report is submitted.
He adds that the materials to repair the Centre won’t likely arrive until the freight boats start running.
The DHSD will determine if they’ll cover the costs after that final report is received.
After today, the Daycare Centre’s childcare workers will be laid off for the summer.
