Welcome to the Okanagan Fish/Water Management Tool!
The FWMT is an award winning real-time decision support system for evaluating consequences of alternative releases from Okanagan Lake Dam at Penticton. It predicts expected net inflows for several key locations and reports outcomes for key objectives and performance measures for flood control, lake and river recreation, kokanee, sockeye and rocky mountain ridged mussels. FWMT is the product of a highly enterprising collaboration of members of the Canadian Okanagan Basin Technical Working Group and Douglas County Public Utility District, and has been used successfully since 2003. Access to the software is restricted to registered users.
