Stage 3 Water Restrictions Sept 10 to Sept 20

The Comox Valley Water System will move to Stage 3 Water Restrictions beginning Sunday, September 10, 2017 at 8 am until Wednesday, September 20, 2017 at 4:30 pm. During this time BC Hydro will conduct maintenance and repair work at the Puntledge River generating station. Fish screens will also be cleaned to help redirect salmon back to the river.

During Stage 3 the Comox Valley water system will be supplying water to residents from the standby Puntledge pump station. The standby station is unable to meet peak demand as well as maintain fire flows, resulting in this required heightened restriction.

These restrictions apply to the Town of Comox, City of Courtenay, and the Sandwick, Arden, Comox Valley, England Road, Marsden/Camco and Greaves Crescent Water local Service Areas.

During Stage 3 Water Restrictions residents are prohibited to water their lawns or pressure wash driveways and boulevards; fill a swimming pool, hot tub or garden pond; or wash a vehicle or boat (other than in a commercial car wash or car dealership).
