Water quality in the Okanagan Valley could be about to improve.
The news comes following an announcement from The Okanagan Basin Water Board (OBWB) last week that they approved $300,000 in funding for 17 projects that will help conserve and improve the quality of water in the valley.
The decision was made to approve the Water Conservation and Quality Improvement (WCQI) Grants by the directors at their regular board meeting on Tuesday, April 5.
“This year we saw a lot of very strong applications focused on action for conserving water or improving its quality,” said James Littley, OBWB’s Operations and Grants Manager.
