Hot springs still not springs

  • Mar. 28, 2013 8:00 a.m.

There are still no hot pools at Hotspring Island. There’s been no change since January, when a crew discovered warm water seeping from the cliffs, said Gwaii Haanas external relations manager Terrie Dionne. The water is still seeping but it is not collecting in the pools. Ms Dionne remains hopeful, as the other discovery in January was heat radiating from the bottom of the empty pools, and that has continued as well. “We have no scientific evidence, but we hope that it will come back” she said, as she believes the changes are positive signs. Remote monitoring devices were installed in mid-November to record the state of the hotsprings, since they went dry after October’s 7.7 earthquake. Ms Dionne said that Gwaii Haanas will have crews in the field regularly now, so more regular updates will be available.
