Water Restrictions Lowered

The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) is advising residents that water restrictions throughout the region have been lowered. 

Working closely with BC Hydro, the CVRD is now in a position to reduce water restrictions to stage one for those connected to the Comox Valley water system. This applies to the residents living in the Town of Comox, the City of Courtenay, and the Arden, Comox Valley, England Road, Marsden/Camco, and Greaves Crescent local service areas. Stage one is in effect year round unless conditions warrant an increase to a more stringent phase.  In this water system, stage one allows people living at an even-numbered address to use a sprinkler to water a lawn from 4 am to 9 am, and 7 pm to 10 pm on an even-numbered day.  People living at an odd-numbered address can water during the same time period on odd-numbered days.

Water restrictions for those living in Royston and tied into the Village of Cumberland water system are lifted completely from October 1st through to April 30th, unless future circumstances determine otherwise. There are no watering restriction in place for the Black Creek-Oyster Bay water system. Water restrictions in this area are put in place when the CVRD considers it necessary (i.e. extreme drought situations).  

The CVRD would like to thank the region’s water users for adhering to the water restrictions. To keep up-to-date with the local area water restrictions, visit www.comoxvalleyrd.ca/restrictions
