The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD), in conjunction with Island Health, has issued a boil water advisory.

Due to the intense rainfall experienced over the last several days, turbidity levels have risen in both Comox Lake and the Puntledge River. The water that supplies the Comox Valley water local service areas originates in Comox Lake and is taken from the Puntledge River and delivered to approximately 41,000 residents.

All users of the Comox Valley water system (especially those with compromised immune systems), are advised to boil their drinking water for one minute at a rolling boil. Those areas affected by this boil water advisory are the City of Courtenay, the Town of Comox, and the Comox Valley, Arden, Marsden/Camco, Greaves Crescent, and England Road water local service areas. (Please note: this boil water advisory does not affect residents in the Village of Cumberland, Royston or those connected to the Black Creek-Oyster Bay water supply system).

Until the boil water advisory is lifted, all users are asked to minimize non-essential water use. The CVRD will advise users when the problem is resolved.

If you have any questions regarding this notice call the CVRD at 250-334-6006. For updated information and resources on the boil water advisory, visit www.comoxvalleyrd.ca/boil.
