As of July 9, a Public Notice that was issued for several beaches along Okanagan Lake in Vernon has been rescinded and beaches have been reopened to the public.

A water quality advisory remains in place for Lakeshore Park. Bacterial levels are considered acceptable; however, swimming is not recommended at this time. The City will continue to monitor the water quality and will provide information as it becomes available.
