Fire Hydrant Testing


Between March 14 and May 31, 2022, Kamloops Fire Rescue will be inspecting the City’s fire hydrants and conducting tests to ensure adequate flow and operation. The program will run from 9:00 am to 8:00 pm, seven days a week. Please note that all private hydrant owners must also have their hydrants tested at this time.

Flow testing may temporarily result in poor water pressure and/or high turbidity levels for up to four hours. If you detect turbidity, run a cold water tap and avoid doing laundry until the turbidity clears up.

Fire Prevention Bylaw No. 10-37 requires a minimum of 1 m clearance around a hydrant in all directions for the safety of emergency and maintenance personnel. For more information, call 250-828-3461 or visit
