The Okanagan Basin Water Board has been awarded a $397,000 grant by the federal government to study and record water flows in creeks entering Okanagan Lake and the water needs in the region.
The money, from the federal Gas Tax Fund, will help local, municipal, provincial and federal officials better understand the water needs in the Okanagan, a region known for its water challenges. It is also home to Canada’s largest population growth, according to one recent report.
The announcement of the grant was made Friday in Kelowna.
