The City of Prince Albert has decided they will continue to operate their water treatment plant despite the muddy water in the North Saskatchewan River.
As the water churned through the Battlefords yesterday (Thurs) North Battleford shut down one of their water treatment plants.
The water there is still safe to drink and doesn't need to be boiled but that City is asking residents to try not to water their lawns and gardens until further notice to conserve water.
Now, Prince Albert officials have taken some test samples from the water in North Battleford and determined their treatment plant will be able to handle the event and so they will keep their water plant on-line.
That means residents in P.A. won't have to worry about water conservation for now.
The muddy water is coming down the pipeline as a result of rising water levels in the North Saskatchewan River.
