The Comox Valley Water System is now under Stage 3 water restrictions until September 28, 2020. BC Hydro is draining their Penstock for planned maintenance repairs, which requires the Comox Valley Regional District to move to its emergency back-up pump station to draw water from the Puntledge River for the entire duration.
During Stage 3 water restrictions, residential lawn and garden watering with a sprinkler is not permitted at any time. Watering trees, shrubs, flowers, and vegetables using a hand-held container or a hand-held hose equipped with an automatic shut-off nozzle is permitted on any day between the hours of 6 am - 8 am and 8 pm - 10 pm.
