Launch of unique project prompts valley mayors to challenge residents to “Make Water Work” in their yards

May 7, 2015

Kelowna, B.C. – With the warm weather, lower-than-average valley water levels and sprinklers already turning on, the Okanagan Basin Water Board (OBWB) and its WaterWise program have announced the kickoff of their annual outdoor water conservation campaign – “Make Water Work” – with an earlier-than-normal start date. And, it began with an announcement at Bylands Nursery in West Kelowna about a unique new program.

The OBWB’s Okanagan WaterWise, the Okanagan Xeriscape Association (OXA) and Bylands Nursery have developed a “Make Water Work Plant Collection,” unveiled today. And, thanks to interest from garden centres throughout the Okanagan, this collection of low-water, xeriscape plants will now be available to residents from Armstrong to Osoyoos.
