Water Conservation Advisory
Attention: To Supply System (north and west ) customers.
Sask Water has been advised that the Buffalo Pound Water Treatment Plant is currently experiencing a slowdown in its treatment process due to the current water quality in Buffalo Pound Lake. Several years of wet weather increased run-off into the lake, which subsequently produced higher than normal level of algae. The water quality issue in conjunction with the high demands due to the current warmer temperatures have resulted in demand outpacing the current treatment capacity.
As a result, SaskWater is asking its Buffalo Pound Potable customers to limit their discretionary water use such as lawn irrigation and car washing during this period.
Any questions regarding this advisory should be directed to:
