KAMLOOPS - Repairs to a booster station in Aberdeen will shut down the water supply to businesses and residences for up to eight hours Friday.

Darren Crundwell with the city says repairs, which will include the replacement of existing pipes and valves, will begin at 10 a.m., Friday, Oct. 2. The water supply to the reservoir could be shut down for up to eight hours.

Residents and businesses south of Hugh Allan Drive will have limited water capacity for domestic needs during this time and residents are being asked to minimize water consumption for things like laundry, dishwashing, irrigating and car washing.

Water may be discoloured once the supply is turned back on. Crundwell notes this may happen due to disturbed deposits in the pipe but is not harmful because the water has been disinfected. Air may also be present in the pipes. Running a cold water faucet for several minutes should eliminate both problems.
