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.
