A major Okanagan water study has been recognized.

The Okanagan Basin Water Board and 13 partnering agencies were presented with the award for excellence in the water and waste community by the B.C. Water and Waste Association.

The award recognizes the three-year Okanagan water and supply demand study.

“After several years of intense work, getting to understand the complex working of our water in the Okanagan – how much we have – how much we use – it’s wonderful to have that work recognized by the BCWWA with this major provincial award,” said Anna Warwick Sears, OBWB executive director.

The other participating agencies include the Ministry of Forests, the Ministry of Environment, the Ministry of Community of Development, the Ministry of Agriculture, Agriculture Canada, Environment Canada, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, the Okanagan Nation Alliance, the Water Supply Association of B.C., the B.C. Agriculture Council, the University of B.C., Simon Fraser University and the University of Lethbridge.
