Update: Precautionary Drinking Water Advisory Rescinded
The Water Security Agency, in consultation with the Kelsey Trail Health Region, are advising that the Precautionary Drinking Water Advisory (PDWA) issued by the Water Security Agency for the potable water system be rescinded, as of 8:30 am Thursday, July 28, 2016. SaskWater strongly urges customers to continue to suspend all non-essential water use such as watering of parks/lawns, until further notice.
July 28, 2016
The rescinding of the PDWA was based upon information provided by your Waterworks, which included:
- During the change to the alternate source the regulated filter effluent turbidity never exceeded acceptable levels.
- Chlorine residuals throughout the WTP and distribution system are within regulatory requirements; and
Your communities may return to normal monitoring requirements as identified in your permits monitoring schedule.
