Event Details

Whether a dry period in the Okanagan is considered a drought depends on geography, infrastructure and management regimes, and water demand for environmental and human uses.  It is essential to characterize different drought intensities to develop appropriate response plans.  If an official drought declaration is called too late, opportunities for conservation measures may be lost.

Okanagan Sustainable Water Strategy (2008)

 

You are invited to participate in this 2015 Okanagan Basin Water Board workshop to better understand drought response planning and how your water utility, local government or agency can respond to current and future water shortages. There is a need for collective action and a Basin-wide approach to drought planning.

This workshop will be of particular interest to local elected officials and staff, water suppliers, senior government managers, water license holders, agriculture sector members and media.
