City of West Kelowna's Water Sources

The City of West Kelowna's five service areas draw from varied sources.

Lakeview has rights to draw water mainly from creeks and reservoir lakes in the Lambly (Bear) Creek watershed, while Westbank has permissions to draw predominantly from Powers Creek and the reservoir lakes in its watershed.

A connection exists between Lakeview and Westbank, allowing water to be transferred in emergency situations. Ultimately, both these systems feed into the third source, Okanagan Lake, from which the Pritchard, Sunnyside and West Kelowna Estates systems draw water.
