There is major restoration needed to the beach sites, access road and community dock at a minimum before this waterfront park can open to the public.
The level of Okanagan Lake dropped 1.5 centimetres from yesterday and is now at 343.037 metres above sea level; however, the lake still sits just over 55 centimetres above full pool. Kalamalka Lake is down 1.1 centimetres from yesterday and is now at 392.232 metres.
Residents and visitors looking to enjoy lakes in the area are encouraged to check out the Boating Wake maps at www.cordemergency.ca/map and follow the guidelines for respectful boating. Once lake levels reach more reasonable levels, regular boating activities can resume.
Property owners along lakefront should continue to monitor their flood protection measures.
