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.
