Grantee Feedback

Osoyoos Irrigation District, 2006

“The project has met our goals to regulate water usage, provide equitable water distribution and conserve energy in our orchards. The grant provided by Okanagan Basin Water Board and the assistance provided by your staff was instrumental in completion of this project. Thank you.”

City of Armstrong, 2007

“The City has been very pleased with the application process. Sufficient time was allowed for the City to prepare the original grant application and the Board dealt with the application within the original timelines set out in the grant. OBWB staff has been very helpful in providing advice and direction throughout the process.”

Regional District of Central Okanagan, 2009

“OBWB encouraged a collaborative approach and the project could not have been achieved without the pulling together of various stakeholders. We were able to also link projects together and carry funds forward – and this flexibility in the grant program is invaluable.”

Westbank Irrigation District, 2009

“The Westbank Irrigation District wishes to thank the OBWB for their continued generous grant contributions for 2009 and past years. The grant funding has been a significant benefit and has allowed WID to complete projects pertaining to water conservation and other key aspects related to water supply and demand management that otherwise would be difficult to undertake.”

Greater Vernon Water, 2011

“Greater Vernon Water has received a number of WCQI grants in the past five to six years. The grants have developed opportunity to work with partners and other stakeholders. We hope the WCQI grants continue as they inspire innovative projects that are not always possible due to staff time or dollars.”
