Okanagan Lake is one of, if not the most important feature of our region. The lake is a significant revenue source because it supplies key services such as tourism, recreation, and agriculture, and supports our cities and rural areas in numerous ways. The lake also provides key environmental services such as fish and wildlife habitat, drinking or irrigation waters for many valley residents, and flood and drought protection.

Audience:  Government and Public

Regulators at all levels of government and the general public are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of managing our watersheds in a sustainable manner. Land owners and the general public are often concerned and may not understand how their activities influence shoreline condition, or understand how shoreline management is being undertaken. For these reasons, an update to the FIM mapping of Okanagan Lake was undertaken as recommended. The Okanagan area has acted as a catalyst for initial shoreline mapping exercises, and continues the progressive leadership role with this inventory and report.
