If drought conditions are declared this summer, the Okanagan Basin Water Board says it’ll be ready for them.

This week, the Okanagan Basin Water Board (OBWB) released its April board meeting report. In it, OBWB said several projects are underway to help area water utilities prepare for a possible drought this year, including an update to its drought response strategy.

“If the B.C. government declares the Valley in Level 2 drought, or higher, the strategy is triggered and includes activities that OBWB will undertake, including drought bulletins to water providers, public communications and more,” said the OBWB.
