The regional district recently received environmental approval for maintenance work on the boat launches in Kaleden and Okanagan Falls.
“We are in the process of finding the time to go back and make repairs,” RDOS Community Services Manager mark Woods told the Review, noting that contractor Greyback Construction would be making the repairs.
Woods explained that constant wave action had been eroding the base of both launches, but could be easily repaired by using larger “armouring” rocks to protect the sides.
“The design is such that it is an easy process to release the chains to separate the damaged slabs and replace them,” Woods said. He added that the work would take place either in the fall or spring, depending on which season would offer the best opportunity to work. Environmental protection practices will have to be followed during repair work.
