The peace and tranquility near Ogden Point may be interrupted over the next few days while a Canadian naval ship is being repaired.
Repairs to the MV Asterix began Jan. 21 and will continue until Feb. 1. The work requires the use of a large generator, which the Greater Victoria Harbour Authority (GVHA) has warned may peak through Jan. 22.
Until Feb 1st, the CDN naval ship Asterix at #ogdenpoint will undergo repairs that require the use of a large generator. While we anticipate the noise to remain within acceptable levels, we understand that it might increase between Jan 21-22. For any questions, please PM us. pic.twitter.com/NGpTCtDWXk
