WEST KELOWNA - Civic officials are wondering exactly who owns it or what it is but they would like to find out more information about the big metal thing submerged in Gellatly Bay.

West Kelowna bylaw enforcement, in a press release, described the object moored to a buoy in the bay as a “large, metal, partially submerged structure.”

“The city is not aware of how the structure came to be moored to a buoy in the bay, nor who the owner is,” communications supervisor Kirsten Jones said.

Anyone with information on the structure is asked to phone West Kelowna bylaw at 778-797-8810.
