The Comox Valley Regional District, in conjunction with Island Health, has issued a boil water notice effective immediately.

Due to the intense rainfall over the past week, turbidity levels have risen in both Comox Lake and the Puntledge River. Water that supplies local service areas originates in the lake and is taken from the river, delivered to approximately 41,000 residents.

All users of the Comox Valley water system, especially those with compromised immune systems, are instructed to boil their drinking water for one minute at a rolling boil.

Areas affected by this boil water notice 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: the notice does not affect residents in Cumberland, Royston or those connected to the Black Creek-Oyster Bay water supply system.

If you have any questions regarding this notice call the CVRD at 250-334-6006.
