City of Kamloops Water Distribution System

Kamloops, B.C. - The City of Kamloops will be conducting upcoming emergency repairs to the Juniper Water Booster Station. In order to proceed with the repairs, the City of Kamloops Utility Division will need to conduct tests on the water distribution system to ensure continued water supply to all the affected areas throughout the work. This test will take place on Thursday, January 28th continuing until Friday, January 29th.

North Kamloops, Brocklehurst, Westsyde and Valleyview may experience lower than normal water pressure with a possibility of increased turbidity during this time.

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 should eliminate both air and discoloured water problems.

The City apologizes for any inconvenience.
