KAMLOOPS — The City of Kamloops is asking Westsyde residents to ease water use over the next few days while a new piece of city infrastructure is hooked up.

The $8.3 million secondary water intake will be connected to the main water line that supplies the neighbourhood.

Residents will still have water service, but the city says the work will limit its ability to supply the community's reservoir.

City officials ask Westsyde residents to only use water for essentials and turn off their irrigation systems until Wednesday.

The work will also impact traffic, with Westsyde Road near Yates Road reduced to one lane in either direction.
