The map allows people to locate water, sanitary, drainage and irrigation infrastructure. It can be searched via an interactive online map or be printed.

According to the city, hitting utilities during ground work can damage costly infrastructure and be dangerous. Additionally, structures have been inadvertently built on top of utilities, leading to accessibility issues for city crews in situations such as leaks or blockages.

To find city-owned underground utilities, go online to kamloops.ca/utilities.
