Cook Road Boat Launch Area in Need of Dredging
Due to natural water and sand movement, Cook Road Boat Launch is experiencing an accumulation of sand impacting boat access to Okanagan Lake.
Sediment from Mission Creek is moving north and typical wind and wave patterns have collected a higher than normal volume of sand, the City of Kelowna said in a press release.
Dredging of the area is required and approvals by regulatory agencies are expected in the fall.
The boat launch remains open, but boaters may experience longer wait times during the long weekend due to the volume of users expected. A portion of the dock on the south side will be closed.
