The city of Prince Albert is using alternate resources to fill their water reserves.
Water is being brought in from the Little Red River Park and the South Saskatchewan river to ensure the water reserves continue to remain available.
Sam Ferris, with the Water Security Agency, says the City is using their storm water retention ponds for the city’s water supply.
“The city remains to be reliant on its’ reserve supplies and drinking water produced from the storm water retention ponds,” said Ferris.
“I was advised that water is being pumped from Little Red River to the front end basin at the water treatment plant.”
