October 11, 2018 8:51 AM

As a result of the natural gas pipeline rupture near Prince George, FortisBC is asking customers across the province to turn down their thermostats and reduce natural gas usage.

Starting this Friday, October 12, the Maple Ridge – Pitt Meadows School District will be reducing the temperature in all schools and facilities by 2°C and setting thermostats at 20°C to help conserve energy.

Although warmer outside temperatures are expected on Friday, please have your child(ren) dress appropriately to stay warm and comfortable inside the school or classroom.

Temperatures inside schools and facilities will remain at 20°C until the FortisBC natural gas advisory is lifted. Please visit for the latest updates.
