News Release

Land Development Project Affects Water Supply in City’s Northeast

For immediate release: June 27, 2016


Public Works and Saskatoon Water have been dealing with an urgent situation in the city’s northeast.

A contractor working on a private land development punctured a 42” Primary Water Main which resulted in significant depressurization in the neighbourhoods on the east side of the river, north of College Drive and east of Central Ave.

West side neighbourhoods are not affected.

The break was isolated at 1:15 p.m. and water service and pressure is currently returning to normal. In the meantime, and as safeguard, a Drinking Water Advisory is in effect for the above mentioned areas.

Right now, City staff are checking the system and conducting water quality tests. In addition, Saskatoon Water is performing computer modelling to determine the extent of the area affected.

NotifyNow will be used to advise affected customers and citizens of the DWA and where to find further information.

Water Outage service alerts will be issued as more information becomes available. and follow @YXEServiceAlert on Twitter.

Earth Day Clean Up-April 22, 2016

WUHCA will be hosting an Earth Day Clean Up on Friday Aprill 22 from 10am-2pm. Home base will be in the Willowgrove Square. We will have supplies to get you started, and a collection spot for all the trash.

How can you participate? Easy: grab a plastic bag and start filling it with those loose pieces of trash that have escaped the recycling bins over the winter.  Come see us in the square to drop off what you’ve collected or dispose of the trash in your own city garbage bin.

Thanks to the schools for letting us put all the collected trash in their dumpsters when we are done, and to Willowgrove Moms for enthusiastically supporting this event. Spring IS on its way. Let’s clean up so we can enjoy our neighbourhood this summer.
