A cleanup is underway in central Alberta after diesel fuel from a truck crash spilled into a creek prompting Stettler to make a temporary switch in the source of its water.
The accident occured yesterday on Highway 21, east of Red Deer when a semi with two trailers went out of control and ended up in the creek.
An unknown amount of fuel leaked into the creek which empties into the Red Deer River.
As a precaution the water treatment plan in Stettler switched to storage pond water.
Water from the Red Deer River is being assessed but it’s not expected regular water treatment will be affected for long.
