Popular Regional Park is Open Again

It’s been slightly more than two years since raging flood waters and debris forced the closure of Hardy Falls Regional Park.

The six hectare park along Deep Creek in the south end of Peachland is once again open and welcoming visitors.

The record 2017 flooding and creek water levels severely destroyed two of the eight bridges in the park.  The accesses for many of the other creek crossings were damaged and much of the creek side trail was also washed out.

In the time since, RDCO Parks Services staff developed recovery and repair plans and successfully received over $48,000 from the Provincial Disaster Assistance Program to repair the destruction.  The total restoration project cost $175,000 and saw the installation of two new bridges, removal of hazard trees and vegetation and rebuilding and resurfacing the trail to the viewing and information platform looking out to the falls.

Regional Board Chair Gail Given says “We appreciate the patience that everyone has shown in the time it’s taken to get Hardy Falls open again.  And we certainly thank the Province for its cooperation and Disaster Assistance Program funding to help us restore the park for visitors.”

The park is extremely popular.  In 2016 prior to being closed by flood damage, approximately 34,000 people walked the creekside trail.  On average, that’s over 90 people a day who visited the regional park.

Hardy Falls is one of 30 regional and 20 community parks protecting over 2,100 hectares for the enjoyment of all Central Okanagan residents.

It's Trunk Sale Saturday in the Central Okanagan

Attention Garage Sale Shoppers –visit 150 garage sales in just one stop.

If you love a good bargain and the thrill of the garage sale hunt you’ll want to check out the semi- annual Trunk Sale this Saturday at Okanagan College. Organized by the Regional Waste Reduction Office, the Trunk Sale is by far the Central Okanagan’s largest garage sale, featuring over 150 vendors selling their stuff straight from the trunks of their vehicles.

Rae Stewart, Waste Reduction Facilitator says Trunk Sales promote reuse and recycling. “The Trunk sale model is unique in these parts, a mega garage sale from the backs of vehicles, one convenient location, tons of bargains. It’s a family friendly way to spend a Saturday morning.”

Stewart adds they’ve been holding two Trunk Sales a year for a number of years now, and with each event they’re always quick to fill to capacity. “Once again, we are full with vendors, but we welcome you to come shop on sale day. No need to drive around from community to community and sale to sale, you can have a more focused garage sale experience, save on time and gas!”

Stewart adds the premise beyond reuse and recycling is to keep any unnecessary and perfectly good material out of our one remaining landfill.

“After the Sale is over we invite a number of charities to the site so those participating don’t have to lug their items home again, they can simply donate them if they choose.  Once again the Kelowna and District SHARE Society will be on hand to accept donations, as will Big Brothers Big Sisters, Planet Earth Recycling and the Canadian Diabetes Clothesline group. Plus, the Okanagan Mission Lions Club volunteers will be helping with traffic control, selling pancake breakfast and lunch.  We couldn’t host the event without this tremendous community support.”

The Trunk Sale runs this Saturday from 8am until noon at Okanagan College, 1000 KLO Road. It’s free to attend, rain or shine. The Trunk Sale will be held in parking lot 17 next to the Student Residence Buildings off West Campus Road.

For further information on the Trunk Sale, visit regionaldistrict.com/trunksale or call the Regional Waste Reduction Office at 250.469.6250.

Recycle Plant Pots and Trays This Gardening Season

Remember to lift the blue lid of your recycling cart after you’ve done any gardening around your home! If you’re not going to re-use them, those plastic flowerpots and plant trays can all be recycled!

Everything from large nursery flowerpots for shrubs and trees to small planting trays for annual bedding plants, perennials, vegetables and herbs can all be recycled. Simply rinse or wipe out the dirt and put the plastics in your recycling cart. These plastic pots and trays can also be taken to your nearest recycling depot.

Waste Reduction Facilitator Rae Stewart reminds us, “Most plastic packaging is accepted in the curbside recycling program, and these plastics from your plants are no different. Just ensure your garden pots or trays are cleaned of all dirt before you recycle them. As for those little tags that identify the plants, those need to go in the garbage, they are not part of the recycling program.”  

Deanne Stephenson,  Manager of Cascades Recovery, the facility where all our recycling ends up for sorting, says, “The markets where the plastics are shipped  for recycling are watching closely for quality issues, so keeping the plastics clear of dirt, wooden stakes, metal twist ties or other contaminants is essential. Other garden items not accepted include ceramic pots, tarps, plastic furniture, garden hoses and plastic string or rope.”

Businesses like nurseries, landscape design contractors and farmers with larger volumes can contact Cascades Recovery at 250-491-2242 to arrange for the recycling of their plastics.

For all your recycling inquiries, and to find out more about what else you can recycle, download the free Recycle Coach app (formerly called the My Waste app) at regionaldistrict.com/recyclecoach, check out the online recycling tool at regionaldistrict.com/recycle, or call the Regional Waste Reduction Office at 250-469-6250.

Still Time to Share Thoughts on 'Connecting Our Region' Survey

There’s still time to provide ideas on how we can better connect Central Okanagan communities through transportation now and into the future.

Residents, students and businesses have until May 21 to help shape the future of transportation in the region by completing an online questionnaire at smartTRIPS.ca.

Results from this survey will feed into the Regional Transportation Plan and the Okanagan Gateway Transportation Study.

The Central Okanagan’s first Regional Transportation Plan will identify the regional transportation projects, programs and policies needed over the next 20 years. The Okanagan Gateway Transportation Study will improve connections to, from and through the Kelowna International Airport, the University of British Columbia Okanagan and surrounding areas.  It will support the vision of the airport, university and surrounding area as a growing, vibrant and connected hub that benefits the whole region.

To access the questionnaire and find more information about the Regional Transportation Plan, visit smartTRIPS.ca.

Recycling Ambassadors Hit the Streets

Are you putting the right things in your recycling cart? The Regional District will be back on the streets again this summer with the help of their Recycling Ambassadors, randomly checking what’s under the blue lid and inside curbside recycling carts. This is part of the ongoing cart education and inspection campaign by the Regional District to combat recycling contamination.

Solid Waste Manager Jodie Foster says they’re launching the Recycling Ambassador Summer Student Program. “Our Ambassadors will not only be reaching out to residents through curbside cart checks and education, you’ll also see them at community events throughout the region, delivering the recycling message.”

“We understand that sorting waste and recycling can sometimes be confusing. Most residents are doing a pretty good job including only what’s acceptable to put in the carts. But recycling audits show there are still a significant number of unacceptable items going into our recycling stream, and that’s a big problem.“

“Things like plastic bags, garbage, books, food waste, garden hoses, plastic shovels, hazardous waste, electronics, scrap metals, textiles, even yard waste—items that have never been accepted in our curbside recycling program are still showing up and contaminating the recycling stream,” says Foster.

“If we don’t significantly reduce and eliminate these unacceptable products from our recycling loads, we face financial penalties from Recycle BC. We’re close to 8 per cent contamination on average and it needs to be 3 per cent or less. We need to do a better job and that requires continuous education and monitoring.”

Foster says the Recycling Ambassadors will have a quick look at the contents in recycling carts, and if they find items that don’t belong they’ll leave information explaining what went wrong.  In some cases if there is significant contamination, carts won’t be picked up until the offending material is removed.

Here are some of the items Ambassadors will be looking for:

  • Garbage
    • Garden hoses, landscape edging and tarps
    • Paper towels and tissues
    • Non-packaging plastics such as toys, Tupperware type containers, laundry baskets
  • Items recyclable at depots and other locations (but not in the cart)
    • Plastic bags including bagged recyclables
    • Styrofoam
    • Glass
    • Soft plastics such as cling wrap, bubble wrap, chip and snack bags, zipper bags
    • Electronics and small appliances
    • Textiles such as clothes, fabric and pillows
    • Soft cover novels and hard cover books and textbooks
  • Hazardous waste
    • Hazards such as syringes and propane tanks

In 2018 the Regional District inspected over 7,800 recycling carts and sends an average of 2,500 letters each year to residents when the wrong materials are found in the recycling, garbage and yard waste carts – to help encourage future compliance.

To find out more about what to recycle in your curbside cart or at a depot, visit regionaldistrict.com/recycle, download the free Recycle Coach App, or call the Regional Waste Reduction Office at 250.469.6250.

My Waste App Out...Recycle Coach In

If you’re one of the over 16 thousand Central Okanagan users of the MY Waste App on your smartphone or tablet, be advised. The app you’ve come to rely on for handy personalized waste collection info, recycling tips and more is being replaced with an identical app – called Recycle Coach.

If you currently use the My Waste App, download Recycle Coach instead and delete the My Waste App. You will continue to receive the exact same information you always have. Recycle Coach offers the same features as My-Waste, including:

  • Personalized curbside collection and events calendars
  • Collection reminders and real-time updates on service disruptions 
  • Disposal information for 10,000+ items with the "What goes where?" search tool 
  • The problem-reporting tool, equipped with geolocation, to notify municipal customer services about issues like missed collections 

Due to changes to Apples App Store guidelines, multiple apps in the same app store offering the same functionality are no longer allowed. As a result, the My Waste App will be discontinued and will not be available for download on iOS/Android stores as of June 14, 2019.  Recycle Coach is from the same company, Municipal Media Inc.

In the coming weeks, My-Waste users can expect special messaging with their collection reminders notifying them to download Recycle Coach.  

For more information or to download the Recycle Coach app, visit iTunes or Google Play, regionaldistrict.com/recyclecoach or call the Regional Waste Reduction Office, at 250.469.6250.

ReCharge While Visiting Two Regional Parks

The natural surroundings of Central Okanagan regional parks are perfect places for many people to recharge their batteries.

Now, visitors to two regional parks can actually do that AND recharge the batteries of their mobile devices.

That’s thanks to a unique two month pilot project devised by students with Enactus Okanagan College. 

They’ve installed a solar power recharging station in each of Mission Creek and Gellatly Nut Farm regional parks.  The stations will be activated during the hours the parks are open until the end of June.

Enactus students Nick Gallant and Cooper Simson say their team found the collective environmental impact from charging mobile devices is increasing at an alarming rate.  “With solar energy being the fastest growing energy sector in Canada” the pair says “our team saw an opportunity to bridge the gap between carbon dioxide emissions associated with phone use and the growing need for green energy.”

The Enactus students developed ReCharge, an innovative product that’s aimed at integrating solar-powered phone charging stations into everyday use.  

Visitors can bring along their USB charge connecting cable, plug it into one of the ReCharge outlets and boost the battery in their smart phone, tablet or laptop device while enjoying the park scenery.  View Video

Regional Parks Services Operations Manager Brad Ackerman says our parks are environmentally-friendly, natural settings.  “The green technology exhibited by the ReCharge station pilot project is a perfect fit and we anticipate the stations will be a welcome addition to visitors in these two busy regional parks.”

Enactus Okanagan College is a non-profit student organization is focused on developing and implementing community projects.  The ReCharge pilot project will run through the end of June.

The Regional District protects over 2,100 hectares in 30 regional and 20 community parks for the enjoyment of all Central Okanagan residents.

Water Quality Advisory for Falcon Ridge Water System

The Regional District of Central Okanagan has issued a precautionary Water Quality Advisory for residents served by the Falcon Ridge water system.

Approximately 55 properties connected to the Falcon Ridge system off Highway 33 are affected. 

Increased turbidity in the water system source has resulted in water quality that might impact some residents.  Interior Health has been consulted and roadside sign notices will be in place advising of the water advisory.

It’s recommended that Falcon Ridge water customers follow Interior Health guidelines, especially those with weakened immune systems, the elderly, children and those wishing additional precautions.   All water intended for drinking, washing fruit and vegetables, making beverages, ice or brushing teeth should be boiled for at least one minute or customers should use a safe alternative to water from the tap such as bottled or distilled water.

This precautionary water quality advisory will continue until further notice.

Trail Sections Closed in Mission Creek Regional Park

Short sections of three trails in Mission Creek Regional Park are closed after a slope slide.

For safety of visitors, Regional Parks staff has closed the area of the park at the Cottonwoods Bridge and three trails on the south side of the creek near the spawning channel up into the Sutherland Hills portion of the park. 

Brad Ackerman, Parks Services Operations Manager says “Until slope stability can be assessed, the Regional District urges park users to respect the barricades and trail closed signs.” 

The affected portion of the trails will remain closed until further notice.

No debris has made its way into either the spawning channel or Mission Creek.

Visitors are encouraged to use any of the open trails within the 92-hectare regional park or visit www.regionaldistrict.com/pickapark for information about our 29 other regional parks.

Know the Risks, Make a Plan, Get a Kit and Subscribe

Any Central Okanagan resident who’s faced a natural emergency would tell you that it’s easier to cope with the stress of being out of their homes when:

A)   They knew the risks in advance and prepared and practiced a family/business emergency plan.

B)   They prepared family/vehicle ‘Grab and Go’ kits and kept them updated.

C)   They subscribed to receive information updates on the status of an emergency at cordemergency.ca, the Central Okanagan Emergency Program website.

Emergency response requires swift action and there may not be an opportunity to provide much advance notice for an evacuation of an area if the risk to public safety is imminent. First responders may only have minutes to notify residents to gather family and belongings and leave the area as directed. That possibility makes having a prepared Emergency Plan and ‘Grab and Go’ kit even more important.

The best time to prepare for an emergency is when there isn’t one! Residents of the Central Okanagan can find a number of useful links, preparedness information, checklists and videos at cordemergency.ca/beprepared.

Being familiar with important emergency terms in advance can also help remove stress and fear in case of an emergency incident:

Evacuation Alert (be ready and on standby):  Residents need to get ready to leave their homes at a moment’s notice, but for now can remain at their home until more information is provided by emergency officials. Gather document, medication and essential items, make a plan for pets and farm animals and consider arrangements for family members who are older, challenged or require special equipment as they may need more time to leave. The alert may be upgraded to an order on short notice.

Evacuation Order (get out):  It is necessary for homes or an area to be evacuated due to imminent risk to safety. Residents must leave their home and property immediately. You will not be able to return home until emergency personnel has deemed it safe to. While the evacuation order is in effect, the area will have controlled and restricted access. Residents can check-in with an Emergency Support Services (ESS) site for immediate living needs (shelter, meals, information).

Evacuation Rescind (safe to come home): It is safe for evacuees to return to their home and area, however, residents may remain on evacuation alert and may need to leave again on short notice if the emergency incident evolves.

Over the coming weeks, the Central Okanagan emergency program social media channels will be providing helpful tips and resources for residents to get prepared. Tune-in for an informative Facebook Live session this Friday, March 8 at 1:30 p.m. to learn more about getting prepared for an emergency. For ongoing emergency information, follow us at Facebook.com/CORDEmergency and on Twitter at @CO_Emerg.

Visit cordemergency.ca for the most up to date information and resources on how to be prepared to keep your family and property safe. On the website you can sign-up for e-updates to have the latest news delivered to your inbox including if there is an emergency activation.

The Regional District of Central Okanagan Emergency Program is coordinated by the Kelowna Fire Department on behalf of the regional district, the cities of Kelowna and West Kelowna, districts of Lake Country and Peachland, Westbank First Nation.

October through December 2018 Program Highlights

The final three months of 2018 were active ones for the Regional District of Central Okanagan.

The fall edition of our Repair Café produced another big turnout of residents supporting the concept of repairing rather than replacing and tossing broken items into the trash.  Several of our parks saw important repairs and two fire departments received tremendous response from their communities to Christmas season food drives.

These are just a few of the video highlights of our regional programs and services from October through December 2018.

July through September Program Highlights

The first weeks of the third quarter of the year was dominated by responses to what became known as the Okanagan Complex wildfires, forcing hundreds of residents from their homes.  As the summer advanced, so too did the programs offered by the Regional District.

We saw a regional park severely damaged by flooding in the spring of 2017, repaired and opened again for visitors.  And we saw work on creating the first trail in the region's largest park get underway, thanks to many volunteers.

We hope you enjoy some of  the highlights of our regional programs and services from July through September 2018.

Washouts Close Section of the Mission Creek Greenway

At least two washout slides have forced the closure of a section of the Mission Creek Greenway.

The Pinnacle Trail loop past the KLO Creek Bridge, the Black Bear Trail along Mission Creek and the upper Greenway Trail leading to the Hydraulic Creek trail-end are closed until further notice while staff assesses damage, stability and possible repairs that will be required.  View Map

For safety reasons, the Regional District of Central Okanagan urges Greenway users to respect the barricades and trail closed signs posted at the KLO Creek Bridge (downstream from Field Road entrance).

Regional Parks staff is continuing to monitor creek levels along the entire length of the Mission Creek Greenway recreational corridor. With creeks expected to continue rising due to the recent weather and with spring runoff, people are reminded that water levels may rise unexpectedly and they, children and pets should stay safely back from creek banks, which may be slippery or subject to erosion from the spring runoff.

Boaters and those using Okanagan Lake boat launches are advised to watch for floating debris that may enter the lake as a result of the runoff.
