The Comox Valley Water System is currently under Stage 2 Water Restrictions
The Comox Valley Water System is now back to Stage 2 Water Restrictions. Thanks for your cooperation during the recent Stage 3 Water Restrictions, which were in place due to BC Hydro's annual maintenance at the Puntledge River generating station.
Under Stage 2 Water Restrictions, watering lawns and gardens with a sprinkler is restricted to the following days/times:
|Hours||Even Address||Odd Address||No Sprinklers or Lawn Watering|
|6 - 8 am & 8 - 10 pm||Tuesday & Saturday||Wednesday & Sunday||Monday, Thursday & Friday|
For more information please consult our reference guide.
When do we need water restrictions?
These restrictions are necessary to help ensure there is enough water available for fish flows, domestic needs and fire protection.
Residents connected to the Comox Valley Water System rely on water drawn from Comox Lake through BC Hydro power generation infrastructure. We are fortunate to have Comox Lake as the source for our drinking water, but the lake does not offer an infinite supply of fresh water. Learn more about why water restrictions are needed.
