Partners powerful for Okanagan Basin Water Board

Vernon Morning Star – September 11, 2013

The importance of partnerships highlighted the Okanagan Basin Water Board’s annual meeting in Kelowna.

As the Okanagan faces increasing challenges to its water supply – with aging infrastructure and stronger rainstorms, a growing population and increasing demand for water, uncertain water supplies due to climate change and drought, potential for invasive species – partnerships will be critical in addressing these issues.
