Note from RDOS staff regarding the West Bench reservoir:
We wanted to let people know about some small blasts we are going to be executing today and possibly over the next several days in the West Bench & Sage Mesa area, west of Penticton. We are installing a new reservoir and have encountered rock that we need to blast out. The charges are expected to be relatively small but some people may get worried and call wondering what it is.
The blasting should be finished in a couple days depending on if more is found as the excavation continues.
Please don’t hesitate to provide people with my contact info if they have questions.
