Okanagan Drought Bulletin – June 26, 2018 Tue, 26 Jun 2018 18:49:45 +0000 /341/?p=11845 ]]> OKANAGAN REMAINS IN DROUGHT LEVEL 1 BUT HOT, DRY SUMMER EXPECTED

The B.C. Government has elevated most basins in the province to a Level 2 drought rating, but the Okanagan remains in Level 1 based on current water supply.

That said, it is expected that we will experience another year of extremes in the Okanagan valley. We had record-setting snow packs this winter, but they melted quickly in May and early June due to hot weather. Although the weather has been cooler this week, forecast is for above-normal temperatures this summer.

Okanagan mayors trade gavel for gardening gloves & encourage water conservation Thu, 17 May 2018 17:30:34 +0000 /341/?p=11790 ]]> Kelowna, B.C. 每 As Okanagan communities deal with flooding and record-breaking temperatures, and as talk turns to the possibility of another drought this year, the valley*s mayors gathered today at the UnH20 Gardens to talk water conservation. The gathering comes as the Okanagan Basin Water Board*s Okanagan WaterWise program, and Okanagan municipalities and water utilities, launch their annual residential outdoor water campaign ※Make Water Work.§

※It can be hard to focus on being WaterWise and water conservation when there*s flooding, but it*s a priority for all of our communities to use water wisely,§ insisted Armstrong Mayor Chris Pieper. ※Look at last year. Flooding was quickly followed by fire and drought. Water is a valuable resource and we can*t take it for granted. We have to respect it.§

New online hub for planning guides helps ease access to information Tue, 15 May 2018 19:35:57 +0000 /341/?p=11787 ]]> Many valuable guides and toolkits have been written for the planning community, providing innovative policies, case studies, bylaw language, and legal approaches to environmental protection. While much effort and public funding has gone into developing these resources, uptake has been slow. To help ease access to this important information, the OBWB and CivicInfo BC created tỷ số bóng đá that brings the resources together into one searchable database.

The OBWB and the Fraser Basin Council co-hosted a webinar in March to introduce the online hub. The webinar was attended by more than 75 planners, engineers, biologists, environmental scientists, sustainability specialists, and water managers from local and provincial governments, non-profit organizations, and consulting companies.

Missed our latest Water Supply webinar? Tue, 08 May 2018 23:45:58 +0000 /341/?p=11781 ]]> The Okanagan Basin Water Board hosted an Okanagan Water Supply Webinar on May 8, to review the current and forecasted water supply for 2018 in the valley.

Updates from:
??Environment Canada – Doug Lundquist
??BC River Forecast Centre – Dave Campbell
??Province of BC*s Shaun Reimer – responsible for Okanagan Lake dam management
??International Joint Commission re: Osoyoos Lake management
??as well as updates on groundwater and fire risk

SYNOPSIS: While we*re already experiencing flooding in some areas of our valley, recent warm temperatures are helping the mid-elevation snowpack melt fast. Forecasted rains are only going to make it melt faster and add to water levels. Shallow aquifers are continuing to trend above average. It*s too early to say whether or not we will be getting our mid-May/early June monsoon rains.

That said, there*s a high probability of a hotter-than-average summer. And, despite the snowpack and above-average shallow aquifers in the valley-bottom, there is low fuel moisture in our forests due to last summer*s drought and recent previous droughts. With the possibility of another dry summer, we are looking at another potential drought this summer, leading to a moderate to high fire risk.
