Kris Johnson, director of works and utilities for Summerland, said the municipality is looking into three options for the future of the reservoir lake. These include expanding the capacity of the dam, building the site to accommodate future expansion and maintaining the present levels.

Isintok Lake, west of Summerland, is one of the community’s reservoir lakes and one of two sites where snow pack measurements are taken throughout the winter and spring.

Municipal staff will now finalize and execute the contract.
