Water improvement applications overflowing

February 14, 2016 – Vernon Morning Star

There’s just not enough cash to go around.

The Okanagan Basin Water Board has $58,000 available for water projects in the North Okanagan but local jurisdictions have applied for about $100,000 for 2016.

“It doesn’t take too long to use that,” said director Doug Dirk of the $58,000 cap.

The Regional District of North Okanagan forwarded grant requests to OBWB Wednesday and applications are also coming from Vernon, Coldstream and Spallumcheen.
