Lake level dropping

The water levels in Okanagan Lake are starting to recede.

The latest numbers from the regional emergency operations centre show that the lake peaked at 342.69 metres back on June 1, and has slowly started to come down since then.

Shaun Reimer from BC's Natural Resources Ministry says the lake is about 18 cm above full pool, which still presents a flooding risk.

He says the biggest threat right now is wind storms and the lake is expected to be back to normal levels by late June or early July.
