Why 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.
