Sandbag Removal – Parks Reopened in West Kelowna

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

July 19, 2017


With the lake level approaching full pool and flooding concerns subsiding, the City of West Kelowna has begun removal of flood protection measures from public and private lands.


Residents will see signage in flood-impacted areas indicating that work is underway or will begin shortly. Crews have been arranged through the Regional Emergency Program in coordination with the City’s Parks Department.


Currently, sandbag removal is being undertaken in the Green Bay, Pritchard Drive and Gellatly Road/Whitworth Road areas of West Kelowna, with work resuming in Casa Loma early next week. Residents who are undertaking their own sandbag removal on their property can assist by moving their bags to the roadside for pick up and disposal. 

Please separate burlap and polypropylene sandbags.
