Mayors in the Okanagan are challenging each other, and the residents of their communities, to conserve water this spring and summer as part of the Valley-wide Make Water Work campaign.
“Last year’s experience with drought, and previous drought years, has shown us the importance of working together in the Okanagan on water conservation efforts, where water is all connected,” said West Kelowna Mayor Doug Findlater. “I’m proud to personally take the Make Water Work challenge, doing my part to get the most out of the water I use and conserve, starting with making sure to water plants, not pavement.”
Mayors from Osoyoos to Armstrong also pledged to take the challenge.
