Interesting to note that during these extraordinary water problems the only water supply that had no water advisory is the Out Back water supply from Okanagan Lake.

About Me

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.
