Okanagan water efforts celebrated

As summer winds down, so too does the Okanagan’s Make Water Work campaign, with a celebration of those who worked to conserve and help tackle the second largest use of water in the valley, residential outdoor use. “Make Water Work” is led by the Okanagan Basin Water Board (OBWB)’s Okanagan WaterWise program, and delivered in partnership with local government and water utilities throughout the valley. Conservation efforts were recognized last week with the awarding of the “Make Water Work Community Champion” title to the City of Armstrong, for collecting the most pledges per capita to conserve water, and the awarding this week of two $500 WaterWise yard upgrades, one to pledgee Randy Goncalves of Kelowna, and one to Don Brain who pledged in Osoyoos.
