"The BC Ministry of Environment (MOE) has developed an Okanagan Region Large Lakes Foreshore Protocol that identifies sensitive foreshore areas and outlines requirements, based on risk, for activities below the high water mark."

"This protocol allows for options to provide legal habitat protection for species at risk that occur below the high water mark. The BC Ministry of Environment has identified the following plant species as priority species to incorporate into the protocol for Osoyoos Lake: 1. scarlet ammannia (Ammannia robusta) 2. toothcup (Rotala ramosior), and 3. small-flowered lipocarpha (Lipocarpha micrantha) Rare plant data collected through this project has been submitted to the Conservation Data Centre and is available through their mapping interface."
