Husky Energy pipeline leaks 250000 litres of oil into North Saskatchewan River

Saskatchewan Mayor Ian Hamilton says in the event any oil makes it through to North Battleford, the city will shut down its water treatment plant, which draws its supply from the North Saskatchewan River.Husky has placed berms and booms in the river to seal the spill, and is taking water samples, said Chief Operating Officer Rob Peabody, adding that no advisories about reduced water quality have been issued. 200,000 litres of oil and other material spilled into the North Saskatchewan river near Maidstone Saskatchewan.Schafer said the city has a backup supply of water in its reservoirs and water tower. A ground water treatment plant is still available but officials are asking residents to reduce their water use for the time being. Shots fired at shopping center in Munich
Officials in Germany fear that Friday’s ” shooting rampage” in Munich , which left as many as 15 dead, was an act of terrorism. Meanwhile, a video allegedly taken of a shooter outside a McDonald’s in Munich is also making the rounds on social media. According to Husky Oil, which owns the pipeline, a leak spilled the heavy oil, which is mixed with a thinning chemical, into the North Saskatchewan River near Lloydminster, Sask. “Husky reported to water security that they… saw a sheen and so everything gets shut right down”.”To be honest with you, I distinguish between a media reaction and a public reaction”, he said.”The sheer scale of Energy East is enormous compared to the spill we’ve seen in Saskatchewan today”, said Patrick DeRochie of Environmental Defence, “and this is just one pipeline spill in a series of pipeline spills that we’ve seen over the last 10 years”.”This gathering system is flexible”, Peabody said. He didn’t know the age of the pipeline, but said it would have been regularly inspected under Husky’s management plan. PokeVision Helps You Plan Pokemon GO Excursions
Here’s a hint: if you find yourself at a Pokestop for an extended period of time, using a Lure Module will be worth your while. The items that drop out of Pokestops can be used later when you do combat between your Pokemon and other peoples’ in Gyms. Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall told reporters in Whitehorse Friday that despite the spill, pipelines are still a safe way to move oil.Husky did not provide details on shipments impacted by the closure on a conference call with analysts, and said that it was assessing the spill’s business impact. “We will be watching the water”.”Although pipelines remain imperfect in terms of a conveyance for our oil they are still the safest way to move oil”, Wall said.
