The City of Vernon is reminding residents that Okanagan Lake is currently at capacity, putting lakeside residents at risk of flooding.

Boaters, wakeboarders and personal watercraft users can help minimize the risk by ensuring they are reducing speed near shore so as to prevent waves from damaging property.

Transport Canada advises that anyone operating a power-driven boat in B.C. must adhere to a speed limit of 10 kilometres per hour within 30 metres of shore.
