Castanet – April 15, 2017
The Okanagan Basin Water Board (OBWB) has approved $300,000 in funding to 17 projects that will help conserve and improve the quality of water in the valley.
“This year we saw a lot of very strong applications focussed on action for conserving water or improving its quality,” said James Littley, OBWB’s Operations and Grants Manager.
Three projects were funded in the North Okanagan, including $15,427 to Sqilxw Apna, a local non-profit, aiming to protect and restore the lower reaches of Bradley Creek.
“This project is community-led, and proposes to work with volunteers to accomplish the goals of educating about the creek,” said Littley.
