Coldstream shuts down boat launches because of high water

  • May. 15, 2017 12:30 p.m.

Due to high water levels, Coldstream is closing all boat launches at the north end of Kalamalka Lake until further notice.

“The district thanks the public in advance for their understanding,” said Michael Baker, director of infrastructure services.

The high water levels also impact lakeside residents who are at risk of flooding.

“Boaters, wakeboarders and personal watercraft users can help minimize the risk by ensuring they are reducing speed near shore so as to prevent waves from damaging property,” said Baker.

Transport Canada advises that anyone operating a power-driven boat in B.C. must adhere to a speed limit of 10 kilometres per hour within 30 metres of shore.
