Water Supply Bulletin - April 1, 2017

Posted Thursday, April 13, 2017

The B.C. River Forecast Centre (BCRFC) reports that the snowpack in the South Thompson Basin, which includes the GVW Duteau Creek water reservoirs, is at 106% of Normal.  The high elevation snowpack for the Okanagan Basin, which includes our Kalamalka Lake water source, is at 105% of Normal.  According to the BCRFC, there was a significant increase in snowpack from their March 1st readings as a result of colder than normal temperatures and more snowfall.  Many areas of southern B.C. recorded 150%-300% of normal March precipitation, which helped move snowpack from February below normal levels to at or slightly above normal.
