Silty Water in Westsyde due to Halston Water Main Break

Kamloops, B.C. – The City of Kamloops wishes to advise that residents in Westsyde may be experiencing silty water due to a water main break that occurred yesterday, October 29th.

City crews became aware of the break at 6:30 am on the 29th and worked throughout the night to isolate the issue, which has now been found and is under repair. During this extensive process, crews were required to turn water valves on and off resulting in an accumulation of silty water in the Westsyde reservoir. City crews are currently flushing the reservoir to remove the silty water from the system as quickly as possible.

Further updates will be provided as new information becomes available.
