KELOWNA - Two underpasses along the Mission Creek Greenway are once again open for use.
With creek levels and flows stabilizing over the past week, the trails under the Casorso Road Bridge and on the south side the Gordon Drive Bridge are open for people using the Greenway.
Regional Parks staff continues to monitor creek levels along the entire length of the Mission Creek Greenway recreational corridor.
During the spring runoff, trail users are reminded that water levels along any creek or stream in the Central Okanagan may rise unexpectedly and they, children and pets should stay safely back from creek banks, which may be slippery or subject to erosion.
Weekend boaters and those using Okanagan Lake boat launches and docks are advised to keep their speed and wakes down close to the shoreline to prevent wave erosion in light of the high lake water level.
They should also continue to watch for floating debris that may be in area lakes as a result of the spring runoff.
