Peachland beats out Armstrong for water conservation contest

Kelowna Capital News – September 6, 2019

Peachland has ended Armstrong’s run as winner of the annual Okanagan WaterWise water conservation challenge.

Armstrong had won the title in 2015, 2017 and 2018, while Peachland won the title in 2016 and Oliver was the inaugural winner in 2014.

The challenge is based on signing up individual pledges in their communities to adopt water conservation measures in their homes.

Peachland increased their pledge commitment five-fold over last year, while Armstrong did so three-fold and third-place Osoyoos doubled their pledges.

The award was announced at the annual general meeting for the Okanagan Water Basin Board held today in Kelowna at the Rotary Centre for the Arts.
