Castanet – October 13, 2017
South Okanagan residents will be able to learn how water supply is managed for transboundary water bodies in the region, with the premiere of a documentary film next week.
‘A River Film’ will debut at the Sonara Centre in Osoyoos on Oct. 17 at 6:00 p.m., during the International Osoyoos Lake Board of Control’s annual meeting.
The film showcases Osoyoos Lake and the Okanagan River Basin, two bodies of water that require joint management between Canada and the U.S.
“Breathtaking film footage provides a spectacular look at the river and the lake, taking viewers on a tour of various sites in the watershed, meeting the people, and connecting with the fish and other life that relies on a healthy water supply,” a release from the Okanagan Basin Water Board said.
“It’s unusual to be in a transboundary, shared watershed,” Anna Warwick Sears said, OBWB executive director and board member of the IOLBC.
