Crews have been working to clean up an oil spill at the Enbridge Pipeline south of Regina this last weekend.
It's estimated that approximately 125 barrels of oil was spilled out of the pipe. Officials say that the oil was contained to the pumping station and didn't make it into the ecosystem. High winds did cause some of the oil to spray into a neighboring field, but with snow cover protecting the earth, the spill was easier to clean up.
The line is said to be back to working order now as repairs have been made to the line.
There is no word yet on the cause of the spill.
