Kelowna Talks EP16 - The Okanagan Lake mirage
Jul 27, 2022
Water is a slippery subject in the Okanagan—we are blessed with this large, beautiful lake and yet in the summer, we often have drought conditions. Water is something that most of us take for granted in our day-to-day lives…we open a tap, and it’s available, clean and safe. But for many cities, water is fast becoming a precious and dwindling resource, and Okanagan residents typically use more than twice the Canadian average. In this week's episode, host Bob Evans talks to Kevin Van Vliet, our Utility Services Supervisor, about why we need to conserve more water, and why pumping more from Okanagan Lake isn’t the answer.
