The latest snow measurements taken from Summerland’s reservoirs show levels slightly higher than normal for this time of year.

The measurements were taken on Friday.

At Summerland Reservoir, the snow pack was 113 per cent of the average reading, while at Isintok Lake, the reading was 106 per cent of normal.

“We’re right on target so far,” said Shawn Hughes, water distribution chief operator for the municipality.

In spring, the melting snow fills the municipality’s reservoirs and provides domestic and irrigation water for the year.
