Update: Precautionary Drinking Water Advisory Rescinded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the Precautionary Drinking Water Advisory (PDWA) issued by the Water Security Agency for the potable water system be rescinded, as of 8:30 am Thursday, July 28, 2016.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.

Dear Waterworks Owner/Operator:
 
Rescinding - Precautionary Drinking Water Advisory – Melfort SaskWater and the following Systems: City of Melfort, The Melfort Rural Pipeline Assoc, Town of Star City, Town of Kinistino, Village of Weldon, Village of Beatty, Hamlet of Brancepath, Melfort Rural Water Users, Weldon Rural Farm Group, Hamlet of Fairy Glen, Hamlet of Gronlid, Hamlet of Eldersley and the Hamlet of Brooksby      
 

The rescinding of the PDWA was based upon information provided by your Waterworks, which included:

Your communities may return to normal monitoring requirements as identified in your permits monitoring schedule.
