Orange Rocks Being Investigated

The City of Kelowna has ordered testing over environmental concerns at Cedar Creek Park.  Orange rocks have been unveiled by the receding shoreline over the past few weeks.

It’s possible the discoloured rocks may be from a type of algae but city staffers are waiting for the tests to be completed before commenting.  It’s also possible the rocks have been this colour for quite some time, and have just now been noticed because Okanagan Lake is at its lowest level in almost 20 years.

Results from the testing are expected within a few days.
