New wa­ter sup­ply will get city on tap again

The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

Saskatchewan’s third-largest city should have new sources of wa­ter by the weekend as it con­tin­ues to deal with an oil spill in the North Saskatchewan River. Prince Al­bert shut down its in­take from the river on Mon­day to pro­tect its treat­ment plant and the pub­lic from wa­ter tainted by the Husky En­ergy pipeline leak. Crews have set up pumps and run a gi­ant 30kilo­me­tre-long line from the plant to tap the South Saskatchewan River — there’s also a shorter line to the Lit­tle Red River.
