Planning for clean air - Kelowna

Recent monitoring data shows that the Central Okanagan has one of the worst ground level ozone problems in the country, rivaling that of Toronto and worse than Vancouver. This problem is due to large traffic volumes within a valley that helps trap air pollution. It is precipitated by sunny, warm weather during the spring and summer months.

With the population expected to grow by 50% in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley over the next 20 years, there is serious planning underway to make sure the air stays clean while the area grows.
