Okanagan Basin Water Board

The Okanagan Basin Water Board (OBWB) was established by BC Legislation in 1970 to resolve critical water issues at the scale of the entire watershed. The OBWB has representatives from the three regional districts, the Okanagan Nation Alliance, the Water Supply Association of BC and the Okanagan Water Stewardship Council – a broadly-representative stakeholder group established by the Board to provide independent science-based advice on water issues. The OBWB strives for consensus decisions and directors have equal-weighted votes. Programs are supported through tax assessments on lands within the Okanagan watershed.

“The Okanagan Basin Water Board’s purpose is to provide leadership to protect and enhance quality of life in the Okanagan Basin through sustainable water resource management.”
