After an initial unsuccessful attempt to stop a major pipe leak that spewed millions of litres of untreated sewage into the Red River, the city said the leak was once again repaired, but issues persist.

Michael Jack, the city’s chief administrative officer, said the issue with the bypass pumping system at the Fort Garry Bridge was resolved Friday morning.

“We’ve had people working 24/7 on this, including divers who we’ve required to do any of the work under the water dealing with this. We’ve now got this resolved. Sewage is not being spilled into the river anymore,” he said.

Jack says crews are monitoring the pumping system, and more work will be done to make sure there are no more spills in the future.

However, a spokesperson for the city said shortly after 3 p.m. that the situation is dynamic, and the emergency bypass system is still experiencing intermittant issues.
