Okanagan and Kalamalka Lakes’ levels continue to decline, but protective measures along their shores and the mouths of their feeder creeks remain in place.

Okanagan Lake dropped one centimetre Monday morning, to 343.181 metres above sea level, compared to 343.191 a day earlier. Okanagan Lake remains 70 centimetres above normal for this time of year. The lake has dropped 6.6 centimetres in the last eight days.

“Even if the lake begins to decline more rapidly, levels will not return to normal until near the end of July,” states Central Okanagan Emergency Operations.

Kalamalka Lake dropped 0.6 centimetres to 392.361 metres above sea level Monday morning, compared to 392.367 a day earlier.
