A Saskatchewan city has lifted some emergency water restrictions put in place after an oil spill on the North Saskatchewan River forced it to close drinking water intakes. Car washes, laundromats and other Prince Albert businesses which shut down after the spill two weeks ago can reopen. But Prince Albert director of community services Jody Boulet (boo-LAY') says civic facilities, such as splash pads and a popular water slide park, remain closed. (The conservation measures are being eased because a new temporary pipeline is drawing water from the South Saskatchewan River and another temporary pipeline to the Little Red River is also producing sufficient water flow.)
