The city of Prince Albert is still asking residents to reduce their water consumption while work is being done at the water treatment plant.

The city issued a request to residents on Thursday to reduce any discretionary water consumption including car washes, laundry, washing of pets and generally wasteful practices.

Although lower water flows were recorded Friday, water usage rates rebounded Saturday, with the suggestion that there are many people not limiting unnecessary usage.

The city wants to remind residents that unless that is reversed they may need to adopt more severe restrictions to meet the plant’s regulatory requirements.

The reduction request is expected to be lifted by Tuesday and normal production levels should be restored by that time.
