Dear Mayor & Council,

This letter is to advise that the Water Security Agency (WSA) in consultation with the Saskatchewan Health Authority has, by way of this letter, rescinded the Precautionary Drinking Water Advisory (PDWA) issued to the Village of Debden Waterworks on April 17, 2020. This advisory was issued in response to a water main break causing a depressurization and has been rescinded based on the fulfillment of rescinding conditions.

Letter from the Mayor – April 3, 2020

Village of Debden Residents

From myself and council we would like to extend a thank-you to all in self isolating during this trying time.

These measures seem to be working for us, however it is not time to let our guard down yet.

As everyone is home from work and some with children out of school, it will be a difficult adjustment.

There is an issue that could become a serious problem for the village infrastructure.

Please be cautious as to what your family flushes down with your waste water. No paper or tissue products, other than toilet paper should be allowed to enter our lift station pumps. These pumps were not designed for other materials and are very expensive to repair.

Also it is a good time to remind everyone that grease is a serious issue to waste water pipes as it solidifies and makes a real mess as well as forming a collection point for other debris.

Any questions can be forwarded to our Administrator,

Create a safe day

Rod Fisher
