Lake continues steady fall

As cleanup efforts continue along the shores of Okanagan Lake, the level of the lake continues its steady fall.

The lake receded another 1.5 centimetres over the past 24 hours. It now sits at 342.804 metres above sea level.

That's still about 32 centimetres above full pool.

North in Kalamalka Lake, the level dropped 2.2 centimetres to a level of 392.053 metres above sea level.

While the level dips, efforts continue to remove large pieces of debris left behind by the massive surge of water seen earlier this spring.

A barge will be in the Lake Country area today removing large chunks of unnatural debris such as pieces from broken docks, garbage, trees and stumps.

The barge will make its way to the Westside Road area Friday.

A separate contractor will begin a similar process along Wood and Kalamalka lakes next week.

Property owners along the waterfront are reminded they are responsible for the collection of small pieces of debris from their property.

Those pieces can be placed in yard waste bins for collection, as long as they meet the yard waste criteria.

Sandbags no longer required for flood mitigation can be left at the end of driveways for pickup.
