The City of Weyburn’s water works are back up and running after a water main break caused a water outage for most of Wednesday.
Weyburn’s Claude Morin says the water was just turned on Wednesday afternoon.
“As of about 2:00 PM (Wednesday) afternoon, we have restored water service to the majority of the city,” Morin says. “We’re still working to repair the initial water break that occurred, but that area is isolated from the rest of the city.”
The city is still under a boil water advisory until further notice.
The cause of the burst is still relatively unknown, but at this point it is believed to be caused by ground shifting.
Further updates will be posted on the city of Weyburn’s social media pages and website.
