Meadow Valley Groundwater Availability Study


Regional District Okanagan Similkameen, British Columbia



Environmental Planning


Sustainable Management

Regulatory Authorizations

Water Resources

Associated Environmental completed a water supply and demand review

The project included:

  • A review of well logs and hydrometric data to develop detailed cross sections and the conceptual model of groundwater flow
  • A water demand study with the Ministry of Agriculture to run the Okanagan water demand model

The report concluded that there is limited groundwater available in the area, and that the Regional District Okanagan Similkameen may wish to consider managing land use to limit the water use going forward. This resulted in Bylaw changes to limit density (no accessory dwellings or secondary suites), and OCP changes.
