Administrative history

An Irrigation Committee meeting was called September 27, 1930 by farmers interested in establishing an irrigation system. Salmon Arm orchardists, concerned for the viability of fruit farming in the district, organized to lobby the province of British Columbia for funding. In low rainfall months, lack of water created small, low grade fruit which was unsuitable for the wholesale market. The meeting took place at the Women's Institute Hall. Consulting Engeineers were hired. Studies were compelted on Fly and Larch Hills.
