Crackdown on illegal docks on Okanagan Lake
The Ministry of Forest, Lands and Natural Resource Operations is in the middle of a pilot project to ensure every dock on the lake is legal.
Illegal docks can harm habitat and cut off public access to the waterfront, and the province will be pressing owners of illegal docks to get them up to code.
Patrick Tobin is the Regional Manager of Compliance and Enforcement for the Thompson Okanagan Region, and is running the pilot program which will eventually be extended to other lakes in the province.
