Okanagan residents commit to conservation – win WaterWise yard prizes

Okanagan Valley, B.C. – The Okanagan Basin Water Board (OBWB) and its Okanagan WaterWise program has wrapped up its valley-wide outdoor residential water conservation campaign “Make Water Work” for another year with the awarding of prizes.

As part of the annual campaign, Okanagan residents are encouraged to visit the Make Water Work website (www.MakeWaterWork.ca), review a list of water-saving tips, and pledge to conserve. In addition to saving water in our valley, residents are then entered to win prizes. There were three winners this year, one each in the North, Central and South Okanagan.

Kelsey Powell of Vernon won the $500 in WaterWise irrigation material from ProSource Irrigation Supply, Pam Kirstiuk from Lake Country won $500 in drought-tolerant turf material from Eco Turf Farms, and Summerland’s Holly Dunlop won $500 in plant material from the Make Water Work Plant Collection courtesy of Grasslands Nursery.
