Town of Osoyoos Information on Flood Preparedness

Information Bulletin #2

May 23, 2017

For Immediate Release
Click Here for more information on Flood Preparedness and Updates.
Click Here for more information on Osoyoos Lake Levels.

Osoyoos residents should be aware that Osoyoos Lake is expected to noticeably rise within the next 24 – 48 hours.  This is a result of the continuing high inflows from Okanagan River and the rapidly rising Similkameen River.


All residents around Osoyoos Lake in low level areas should be monitoring their situation closely and, where appropriate, sandbagging as a precautionary measure.  Sand is available on Highway 3 across from the Osoyoos Dairy Queen.  Sandbags are available at the Town of Osoyoos Works Yard at 11500 – 115th Street.

Please check in with neighbours to see if they require assistance in filling sandbags.  Volunteers wishing to help can contact the Emergency Operations Centre at 1-877-610-3737.

Check in with neighbours and make children aware of the potential hazard of being close to creeks with high or fast flowing water.

More information can be found on the Town of Osoyoos website at or Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen (RDOS) website at
