Local businesses, homeowners and governments join forces to Make Water Work

September 19, 2012

Penticton, B.C. – The newly xeriscaped yard of Pat and Doug Maxwell was the setting for a garden party today organized by the Okanagan Basin Water Board and its outreach program Okanagan WaterWise, recognizing efforts by local residents of the Okanagan, businesses and municipalities to conserve water and energy.

“What a wonderful setting to hold this event,” noted OBWB Chair Stu Wells. “The Maxwell’s are a great example of what people can do in their own yards to make a difference, not just lowering their own water and energy bills, but helping to keep a sustainable supply of these resources for everyone in the valley.”
