The Okanagan Basin Water Board will dole out $300,000 for projects to conserve and improve water quality across the Okanagan Valley.
More than half of the grants ($185,442) will go towards 10 projects in the Central Okanagan, $60,439 will be spent on four projects through the Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen and $54,119 will fund four projects through the North Okanagan Regional District.
The water board says the projects were funded from public outreach for water quality protection, to water conserving irrigation improvements in public parks.
Projects in the Central Okanagan include $25,000 to the Mission Creek Restoration Initiative to ensure flood protection and wildlife habitat restoration objectives are met.
