August 11 Situation Update on Husky Oil Spill

Aug. 11, 2016. More than 800 people are now involved in the response, including staff and contractors from Husky, provincial and local government officials, and over 200 from First Nations.

Shoreline cleanup, environmental monitoring and water sampling continue. Early morning fog is delaying some work for responders in making it difficult to access work sites.

Water operations continue to be stable in Prince Albert and North Battleford. Work continues to disinfect some sections of the Prince Albert Rural Water Utility's distribution to surrounding communities.

There have been 97 wildlife mortalities in total, 48 fish, 33 birds/waterfowl, 2 reptiles and 16 small mammals.

Husky has released an update and map on aquatic life water quality evaluation. The Saskatchewan Water Security Agency is also conducting its own independent water sampling.

As the situation is in a more stable maintenance mode, a new update on the Husky Oil Spill Response will be provided next week.

Husky Energy also provides updates at their website.
