Aberdeen Drive Water Main Repair

Kamloops, B.C. The City of Kamloops will be conducting repair work on the Aberdeen Drive water main at Van Horne Drive on Tuesday, October 20 and Wednesday, October 21, starting at 9:00 am.  

The repairs will include the replacement of existing pipes and valves. Water supply to the reservoir will be shut down for up to 8 hours and residents and businesses located south of Hugh Allan Drive in Aberdeen will have a limited water capacity to supply domestic needs. Residents are urged to minimize water consumption, such as refraining from doing laundry, dishwashing, irrigating, or car washing.

Once water is turned back on, the water supply may be discoloured due to disturbed deposits in pipes – it is not harmful as the water has been disinfected. Air may also be present in the piping. Running a cold water faucet for several minutes should eliminate both air and discoloured water problems.

The City apologizes for any inconvenience.
