The Comox Valley Water System will be under Stage 3 Water Restrictions from September 3 through to September 27. During this time BC Hydro will be draining their Penstock for planned maintenance repairs, and the CVRD must move to its emergency back-up pump station to draw water from the Puntledge River.

During Stage 3 water restrictions, residential lawn and garden watering with a sprinkler is not permitted at any time. Residents are also prohibited from pressure washing driveways and boulevards; filling a swimming pool, hot tub or garden pond; or washing a vehicle or boat other than in a commercial car wash or car dealership.
