Officials have increased their estimate for how high Okanagan Lake could rise this spring.
Shaun Reimer from the province says the upper limit could reach 343 metres, about 50 centimetres about full pool.
He says the inflow is being driven by the historic heat wave melting the snow pack.
Reimer notes the water is flowing into the lake faster than last year, but it’s 32 cm’s below the same date in 2017.
He says the lake is rising 5 to 6 cm’s a day, and should reach full capacity Friday..
