Fast Facts:

“Complexities surrounding pump stations aside, this job required us to set up a remote-location base camp on the side of a hill in the Glenmore-Ellison District. Most days were spent working high-above, but still very close to Okanagan Lake. Beautiful view but some very tricky surroundings. Safety was (as always) a premium.”
