Letter: Rotary Beach could use some underwater upkeep

…three stokes and your knees hit the bottom. It is all different depths right out to the buoys.

To the editor:

Rotary Beach is one of the nicest beaches in Kelowna. My husband and I (seniors) try to swim there at least three  to four times a week.

One problem—the silt that has drifted in makes it very difficult. It seems to be in troughs. You walk out till it is deep enough to swim, take three stokes and your knees hit the bottom. It is all different depths right out to the buoys.

I believe it should be dredged and leveled out. That would also solve some of the weed problems. I realize money it tight but as it is a great tourist beach it would be worth it. Perhaps the city could work with the Rotary Club and together they could make it a project.

Also what happened to the no dog signs? Saw several both swimming and doing their duty on the lawn the other day.
