If your water is cloudy, just run the tap for a few seconds

The city is reminding residents they may notice cloudy water on Wednesday as a result of testing of the North Thompson emergency water intake.

The intake, located on Yates Road in Westsyde, is undergoing a multi-stage testing process.

City utility services manager Greg Wightman said the city did not hear of complaints on Tuesday, when the water was also expected to be cloudy, but noted Wednesday “might be the day.”

“So far, so good,” he said.

The city is encouraging residents to run their taps until clarity improves, noting there are no health hazards associated with the cloudy water.

The intake will provide the city with a backup water source in the event of a spill in the South Thompson River.
