Water meters continue to reduce water demand in Kamloops and have allowed the city to defer significant capital expenses.

Wightman noted one capital project deferred included planned upgrading at the Kamloops Centre for Water Quality to meet increased demand.

“A lot of that has been put off based on the reduction of water use that we’ve seen,” he said.

As a result, Wightman said, the city continues to explore new technologies to enhance the water meter program, including getting better information back to residents.

“We’re going to be coming forward at some point with a recommendation of what that might look like,” Wightman said.
