Okanagan Lake rises

  • May. 28, 2017 12:40 p.m.

Okanagan Lake continues its expansion.

Environment Canada reports Okanagan Lake reached 343.06 metres at 6 a.m. Sunday, a one-centimetre rise since Saturday at 11:25 a.m. when the lake level was reported as 343.05 metres.

Residents and visitors to the Okanagan are reminded to leave flood protection measures in place and bolster them in preparation for high water and possible windy conditions. High lake levels and variable weather conditions are expected to persist for the foreseeable future.

The most up to date lake levels can be found on the Government of Canada’s website. The increase of lake levels being reported out by various agencies will depend on what time period is being used to report out on. https://wateroffice.ec.gc.ca/report/real_time_e.html?mode=Graph&type=&stn=08NM083&startDate=2017-05-19&endDate=2017-05-26&prm1=46&y1Max=&y1Min=&prm2=-1&y2Max=&y2Min=

“Residents are reminded that this is a weather driven event and things will continue to evolve with the weather. A sudden change in weather could increase the risk of flooding,” states Central Okanagan Emergency Operations.
