Kal pier fixed by summer

The pier on Kalamalka Lake in Coldstream will be restored to its former glory in time for summer.

The large T-shaped pier was damaged during the spring flooding of 2017 and was closed to the public, but work will soon start on restoring the popular pier.

High water and a storm ripped one wing from the dock that has been an attraction at Kal Beach for decades.

Mike Fox, with the Regional District of North Okanagan, said it will cost approximately $100,000 to repair Rotary Pier, but it will not cost taxpayers a dime as the repairs will be covered by insurance.

The work is tentatively scheduled to be complete by the end of April.

“As long as everything goes well, that is when it is scheduled to be done. It will be the same as before it was damaged,” said Fox. “We have a contractor and we are working out the last details and hopefully next week we will be able to sign a contract and get the work underway.”

Fox said the decking at the end of the 'T' will be pulled up and all the damaged beams will be fixed or replaced.

The dock was damaged while it belonged to the RDNO, but has since been transferred to the District of Coldstream.
