Water in the driest watershed in Canada - Report by Hans Schreier et al

"The objectives of the case study are to show how much water is required to produce different food commodities in the Okanagan Basin in British Columbia and identify potential and emerging conflicting demands on the limited and vulnerable water resources of the basin. This watershed is unique since it is one of the few places in the country with favorable soil and climatic conditions to grow a variety of fruit trees and grapes. The Okanagan is also a headwaters region, the only water available for use is the precipitation that falls in form of rain and snowmelt water." more

About Me

My photo
I have been a resident of Coldstream since 1976. I have had 15 years of experience on Council, 3 years as Mayor. As a current Councillor I am working to achieve fair water and sewer rates and to ensure that taxpayers get fair treatment. The current direction regarding water supply is unsustainable and I am doing all I can to get the most cost effective water supply possible.
