An investigation is underway after a crude oil spill Tuesday in the City of Lloydminster.
According to a Saskatchewan government spokesperson, an employee of that city noticed a spill of crude oil in the ditch.
Approximately 2-thousand litres spilled from a tank trailer into a storm channel on the Saskatchewan side of the border.
It was reported the oil was deliberately dumped.
The spill was contained with sand bags and the contractor is using a vac-truck and steamer to clean the crude from the ditch.
Cleanup is said to be to be done by the weekend.
Government officials say there is no threat to any water supplies or any other infrastructure.
