The Weyburn Police Service is asking your assistance in identifying those involved in the following crime.
In the early morning hours of Apr. 29, an unknown person, or persons, was responsible for opening two fire hydrants. The hydrants were located at Confederation Drive and Sixth Avenue SE and Souris Avenue and 11th Street.
As a result of this mischief, the hydrants were fully open for a period of hours. This amounted to a loss of approximately one million litres of treated water at a cost to the City of approximately $10,000. This incident also dropped the water reservoir and significantly impacted the filtration system. This influx of water nearly caused safety levels to be exceeded, which would have resulted in another boil-water advisory being issued.
If you have any information on this or any other serious crime please contact the Weyburn Police Service or contact Saskatchewan Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
