The human population in the Okanagan Valley is expected to increase considerably over the next 15 years with projected growth from 300,000 to about 500,000.
Increased human demand for water, coupled with agricultural demand and potential climage change impact are expected to stress future water supply in parts of the valley.
Limited opportunities for additional surface water supply have resulted in increased interest in potential groundwater sources to meet growing demand in areas of the Okanagan Valley.
Water resource management in the North Okanagan is complex, with sytems originally built to serve an agricultural community now under pressure from urban demand.
