Today, the (OLWQS) unveiled its new cover designed to protect the organization’s scientific pontoon boat during the warm and windy summer months (May-October).  OLWQS volunteers take water quality measurements throughout the Canadian side of Osoyoos Lake.  Those measurements are then documented and shared with a variety of organizations including the BC Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy.
“We are grateful to the Rotary Club of Osoyoos who graciously provided a grant of $1,000 for us to purchase a summer boat cover for our scientific watercraft,” says OLWQS President Birgit Arnstein.  Rotary Club of Osoyoos President,  Elliott Friedrich presented the funds to OLWQS President Birgit Arnstein at the Osoyoos Marina.  
The boat was outfitted with special poles and snaps by Boat Captain, Iain Fraser to make a custom fit for the pontoon’s unique shape.
