OKANAGAN MOVED TO DROUGHT LEVEL 4
Unprecedented conditions have prompted the Government of B.C. to move the Okanagan to a Level 4 drought.
Water suppliers should do whatever possible to reduce water use in their communities.
Drought is currently impacting all of southern B.C., with “extremely dry” (Level 4) conditions in the West Kootenay, Lower Columbia, Okanagan, Thompson, Nicola, Lower Fraser, South Coast and Vancouver Island basins and “exceptionally dry” (Level 5) conditions in the Kettle Basin.
