The International Osoyoos Lake Board of Control says the increasing water levels are largely due to the surging Similkameen River, “which flows into to the Okanogan River downstream of Osoyoos Lake, impeding outflow of water from Osoyoos Lake (backwater effect).”

That’s coupled with the high inflow into Osoyoos Lake from the upstream Okanagan River. Last week the provincial government slowed the outflow of Okanagan Lake in Penticton, cutting it from 60 cubic metres per second a week ago to 36 cubic metres a second Friday.
