Comox Valley Water System

Comox Valley Water System

The Comox Valley Water System serves approximately 50,000 people (or 16,000 connections). Water is drawn from an intake in Comox Lake and flows through a network of reservoirs, pumping stations and transmission mains or pipes. The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) supplies bulk water to distribution systems operated by the City of CourtenayTown of Comox and the Comox Valley Water Local Service Area. The CVRD also operates five other water systems within the Comox Valley.

Water in the Comox Valley Regional District needs to be used efficiently. The water from Comox Lake and the Puntledge River is licensed and used primarily by BC Hydro for electricity generation and by Fisheries and Oceans Canada for hatcheries and other habitat projects. In addition, the water source has numerous important ecological values and uses.
