This story is brought to you in part by Proteus Waters
Meath Park village residents in Saskatchewan were advised June 5 not to drink the water until test results come back to determine if a foreign substance was put into the water.
Vandals broke into the treatment plant on that date. "There was concern an unknown substance, possibly a pesticide or hydrocarbons were added to the water," explained Mayor Michael Hydamack.
"The test results may be back this afternoon" he said. "The break-in didn't cause any problems since it was more of an inconvenience."
"The water will not be considered safe to drink until all proper procedures have been followed to put the system back into service, including flushing of the system and bacteriological monitoring," Water Security Agency Project Officer, Mahdi Kowsari stated in a notice to waterworks system users on Facebook.
RCMP continue to investigate the incident. Meath Park has a population of 709, and is located 180 kilometres northwest of Saskatoon.
