Heavy duty equipment starts large 10 million dollar project of re routing the canal around the Gallagher Lake Cliff face.
2020 – Tuesday November 3 at 4pm
In January of 2016, a portion of the irrigation works located within the existing canal right of way known as the Gallagher Lake siphon was severely damaged by a rock fall. Council endorsed the Gallagher Low Head Siphon as the project to be undertaken for a permanent fix for the irrigation siphon. The Town and Osoyoos Indian Band have reached an agreement in principle that would allow the Town to re-route a portion of the irrigation system through a different portion of the Reserve.
