Oil traces are found in water samples in Saskatchewan Rivers

Saskatchewan officials are carrying on the investigation of the Husky oil spill. Water samples are now thoroughly analysed and oil traces have been found in some of them, The Calgary Herald says.

Deputy minister of the economy in Saskatchewan Laurie Pushor explains that the samples are studied in a third-party laboratory, but he is not yet ready to speculate on probable reasons of the incident pending the results of the investigation from Husky Energy.

"We will do all the thorough analysis necessary and be completely transparent with our findings when the work is fully completed," deputy minister said in a conference call with media.

Pushor also specified that Husky is to submit a full report on the pipeline leak within 90 days from the incident.

The pipeline leak was detected July 21. As a result up to 250,000 litres of oil were spilled into the river near Maidstone and three neighbouring cities were deprived of free access to water. They had to switch to temporary lines or use reservoirs.
