Classes at the University of Saskatchewan will resume at 6 p.m. CST tonight after the forced cancellation of all classes today.

A severe water main break on College Avenue was the reason to the cancellation of all classes and non-critical services at the university. It caused water pressure to drop below safe levels on campus and parts of Innovation Place. 

Huskies Athletics teams also cancelled practices for this evening.

At about 4 p.m., the university announced the water pressure had been restored. All classes and services will be running regularly tomorrow.
