Penticton Creek

Paul Askey with Freshwater Fisheries of BC holds a kokanee from Penticton Creek. The Penticton Creek Master Plan aims to restore the creek by providing a more natural habitat for native fish species and bringing flood protection measures up to today's standards.

WE HAVE A PLAN

Restore flood protection. Restore fish habitat. Good design lets us do both.

Penticton Creek flood protection measures are a core piece of our City’s safety infrastructure and the Creek itself is an important cultural amenity. However the channel infrastructure in the Creek has deteriorated and is causing sudden and expensive maintenance challenges for City operations. We have a plan that will create a safe, healthy creek for years to come. We can provide the required flood protection while restoring the creek to a more natural state. Our plan employs today’s best practices and our community’s expertise to provide a high level of protection from flooding. The new design will return Penticton Creek to a productive waterway for Kokanee, Rainbow Trout and other native species. The benefit of this approach also allows us to access funds from conservation and habitat agencies to carry out our infrastructure restoration.

In 2015 we restored a Showcase section of the Creek togarner further community support and assess impacts on flood protection andfish. Now we’re taking the success of the Showcase Project forward with a planfor the full 4.5 kilometers of Penticton Creek’s urban passage.
