REGINA – SaskEnergy says it’s dealing with 10 natural gas pipeline washouts in flood-ravaged southeastern Saskatchewan.

The utility says riverbed and ground erosion has exposed the lines, but none of them has been damaged.

A number of the washouts have occurred in the Yorkton, Canora, Genfell, Weyburn, Carlyle and Moosomin regions.

Company spokeswoman Vanessa Beaupre says the areas have been marked to alert the public to potential trouble.
