Duteau Creek water supply report - Latest report on Duteau reservoir (June 9, 2010)

For comparison the May 29 reservoir level is also included. Stage 2 restrictions continue to apply until reservoir level is settled. Kalamalka Lake is also getting higher as well as that of Okanagan Lake. In fact, Okanagan Lake is now higher than it was last year.

Attached graph below illustrates typical distribution of total water use in the Okanagan.

Contrary to expectation nearly all reservoirs south of Vernon are full as depicted below.

The outdoor water use showing as 24 % is misleading. That is a valley wide statistic, and the North Okanagan is WAY lower than that, less than 10 percent of the total is outdoor landscaping use
