Kelowna Dredging Works About to Begin

More work is getting underway this week to prepare for the spring snowpack melt that flows into the streams and creeks that run through the City of Kelowna.

According to the city announcement, the Mill Creek dredging works will begin this Saturday.

Residents living along the creek will notice equipment being brought into the area today in preparation for work that will increase the water flow capacity of the creek,” the city said.

Lake Avenue Park, the adjacent parking lot and the pedestrian bridge crossing over Mill Creek will be closed beginning Friday for approximately four weeks. The City Park tunnel will remain open and signs will be posted to re-route cyclists and pedestrians,” added the city.

This area near the mouth of Mill Creek will be the staging area for crews as they increase the creek’s capacity starting at the lake and moving toward Abbott Street.

The city also said that staff is working through a list of 52 locations in Kelowna that require repairs after last spring’s snowpack melt and ensuing flood, at a cost of approximately $10.7 million.

About $3 million in works completed or underway so far include the repairs to Upper Vernon Creek and Bellevue Creek dredging.
