Regina sewer plant stops discharging untreated sewage
Torrential rain last month overloaded system
After heavy rain threw Regina's sewage treatment system for a loop, it's back to normal operations at the facility.
The city ended a "bypass" at the sewage treatment plant on Tuesday.
Until then, for several days the city had been dumping some untreated and partially-treated wastewater into Wascana Creek.
The lagoons at the city's sewage treatment plant were at capacity because of heavy rainfall, so excess wastewater had to be diverted.
In a public notice, the City said it's committed to environmental protection and has made every effort to minimize the impact of the bypass.
