Castanet – July 9, 2014
Mayors and councillors from up and down the Okanagan Valley have challenged their citizens to conserve water.
According to the latest figures from 2010, Okanagan residents use an average of 675 litres of water per day per year. That’s more than double the Canadian average of 329 litres.
In the summer, the Okanagan average climbs to nearly 1,000 litres per day. It means there is less water available per person in the valley than anywhere else in Canada.
