New mooring docks and a gangway at the Valemount Marina are coming along, but the unusual drop in water level on Kinbasket Reservoir has had the board and volunteers scrambling to keep the docks in the water. Water levels on have been dropping about a foot a week since mid July, which means the docks have to be pulled out, when the usual concern has been to keep them ā€“ and the boats moored ā€“ from smashing against the rocks when a sudden north wind comes up.
