The Saskatchewan Water Security Agency says cities affected by an oil spill on the North Saskatchewan River could reopen their water intakes before freeze up. The cities of North Battleford, Prince Albert and Melfort had to shut off their water plant intakes after the July spill by Husky Energy and find alternate sources. Water agency spokesman Sam Ferris says they're looking at risk assessments to determine when water could flow again. (The Saskatchewan Ministry of the Environment said last week that almost 75 per cent of the estimated 225-thousand litres of petroleum that spilled has been recovered.)
