BWA of the Day
REPAIRS OF SOME SORT PUT TOWN HOTEL UNDER BWA, SK
Though everyone we spoke to in Rosthern, SK knows there is a water advisory, nobody is too sure why the Rosthern hotel is under bwa; it has something to do with either a manhole or a sewer being repaired in the hotel area.
According to Sask H2O the reason for the advisory was that a new complex was being hooked up to the distribution system. "No, that was several weeks ago, this time it's for repairs to a manhole near the hotel, I am not too sure," says office assistant Annette. "This is normal for Saksatchewan, once the work is done we'll need two clean water samples to lift the advisory. As for the hotel, it's been there my whole life, it's old but it's not ancient."
Over at the Rosthern Hotel where Randie Jestin tends bar, "all the ice is bagged up and we're using bottled water for drinks, the restaurant is boiling the water for cooking. It's all taken care of but it's a real pain in the butt."
According to Jestin, there is only a long-term construction crew in the hotel at the moment, so we posted notices everywhere, on the doors, in the toilets " so they don't drink from the urinals, I guess," she says.
"I heard it was a sewer they were fixing. I sure hope they're finished by next week because the American Duck Hunters are coming and we're booked solid. They've been coming here for 40 years, I don't know why, it's weird".
