The Board will provide an overview of the role of the International Joint Commission (IJC), present information on Okanagan and Similkameen Basin water management, including an overview of Osoyoos Lake levels for 2021 (to date) and hear questions and comments from the public regarding lake level management and the Board’s activities.
