The Okanagan Basin Water Board has launched a pledge program to increase awareness of its Make Water Work conservation program. The focus on the program is on domestic outdoor "non-working" water: lawns and shrubs that (a) look nice but don't do anything and (b) lose water to evaporation. Working water, in contrast, creates economic benefit (agriculture, golf). And domestic indoor water use is generally returned to the basin (through the water treatment plant or eventually seepage to the aquifer from your septic field).
From Justin at the RDOS:
Just a heads up the tennis courts at Mariposa are closed until next week. The closure is to accommodate the installation of the new tennis and basketball nets. Please let me know if you have any questions or if you receive any call feel free to forward them to me.
