Upgrades will occur to the water system at Kingfisher.

The Regional District of North Okanagan board has approved $36,100 to deepen the Mabel Lake water intake.

“It’s a good project,” said Patrick Nicol, chairperson.

Each year in June, turbidity in the lake increases, leading to a water quality advisory.

The intake is currently located in a shallow area, therefore by placing it at a lower depth, the regional district hopes to improve turbidity.
