Comox Valley Water Forum May 7

  • Apr. 27, 2016 10:00 a.m.

If you have questions about the lengthy boil water advisories or the amount of time in Stage 3 water restrictions in this past year, you may wish to attend the Comox Valley Water Forum being held at the Comox Recreation Centre on May 7 from noon to 2 p.m.

We will focus on the reasons for these events, the plans being made by our municipality to address these problems and specific steps we can take as residents to deal with water issues.


There will be three presenters. David Stapley from Project Watershed will give a power point presentation of our watershed and the concerns we should have for its integrity. Mike Herschmiller, manager of water services for the Comox Valley Regional District, will help  unravel the complexities behind our current water problems and give an update on what is being planned to address them. Al Fraser, superintendent of parks for the Town of Comox, will share some of his experience with plants and lawn choices that he has gained over the past 30 years with the Town.

In addition, Iritex Irrigation will have a display of some of the products that residents might wish to consider in reducing water consumption. Gail Bates from the CVRD will staff a booth focusing on composting procedures. There will also be additional booths.
