City of Kelowna closes popular Water Street boat launch due to flood waters

Rising water levels have forced the closure of the Water Street boat launch in Kelowna.

Crews are currently sandbagging across the boat launch to keep the lake water away from two large pumps operating there to lower the groundwater level.

The Cook Street boat launch remains open, while the Sutherland Bay boat launch was closed weeks ago due to the high water level.
