Shoreline clean up and several assessments, including water quality and wild life impact from the Husky Oil spill in the North Saskatchewan River from summer 2016 continue.
Last summer, roughly 225-thousand litres of oil leaked from a pipeline into the North Saskatchewan river, affecting water systems in Prince Albert, North Battleford and Melfort.
Assistant Deputy Minister Wes Kotyk said the recent spring run off, and spring break up may cause more problems with sinking oil, but that is part of the new operation.
“Like I’ve said, the purpose of this study is to determine where and if and how much there is, and then to determine how best to recover that if it is recoverable,” Kotyk said.
Husky says they’re 93 per-cent complete on the clean up.
