COLDSTREAM - Just in time for the warm weather the Rotary Pier at Kalamalka Lake has reopened to the public.

The pier was severely damaged during flooding in 2017, which caused widespread damage across the region.

“We recognize that people have had to wait quite some time while we worked on the permitting and insurance claim process,” Regional District North Okanagan general manager Mike Fox said in a media release. “The RDNO is thrilled to be opening the popular pier in time for summer, and thank the public for their patience."

The end of the pier was closed in June 2018 due to safety concern arising from the flooding the year previously.

According to a media release in January 2019 the repairs were set to cost $100,000 and would be covered by insurance. The District of Coldstream now owns the pier, but when the damage occurred it was owned by the  regional district, so it oversaw the repairs.
