Boil Water Notice Information
- January 20, 2017 news release: Boil Water Notice IN EFFECT for all users of the Comox Valley Water System.
Please note: this boil water notice does not affect residents in the Village of Cumberland, Royston, Sandwick water system users, or those connected to the Black Creek-Oyster Bay water supply system.
Due to the intense rainfall experienced in the watershed earlier this week, high turbidity levels in Perseverance Creek have now caused Comox Lake to become turbid. High turbidity can interfere with the chlorination process used to disinfect the drinking water for the 45,000 residents served by the Comox Valley water system.
