Surrey, March 21: An effort is underway to replace a pile on the White Rock Pier after it broke off during a recent winter storm.
The City of White Rock told Peace Arch News March 19 that one of the piles, located on the north end of the pier, was “sheared off” by logs during a storm.
The pier has since been inspected by the city’s marine consultant and an area under the pier was cordoned off. The pier remains safe, the city said.
The replacement plan is to attach a new pile to the base of the broken pile with a metal collar. Repairs are expected to take place within the next few weeks.
