Castanet – November 28, 2019
The Okanagan Basin Water Board is accepting applications to its Water Conservation and Quality Improvement grant program. There will be a total of $350,000 available in 2020, as the board recently approved a $50,000 increase in funding.
“We’re very happy to enhance funding for this program,” said Sue McKortoff, OBWB chair and Mayor of Osoyoos.
“Anything we can do to support the quality and quantity of water in our valley will be key as our population continues to grow, and as we see the impacts of climate change in what is already a water-stressed region.”
“Ensuring we are taking care of our water for the future is critical,” she added, noting that past projects have shown great success in helping address these issues.
