The Yaqakxaqtamki Boat Launch, on the shores of Lake Koocanusa has just wrapped up its second season of operation. The Boat Launch was made possible through the generous support  of three key funders: BC Hydro, Teck and Columbia Basin Trust and the cooperation of several partners. To recognize the contribution of both the funders and partners, the RDEK unveiled a dedication plaque on the site.  The Boat Launch closed for the season October 31st. Most recent upgrades to the facility include upgrades to the dock, attendant facility installation, directional signage and barriers.
