CVRD drops to Stage 1 water restrictions

Restrictions reduced to lowest level, effective immediately

The CVRD returns to Stage 1 water restrictions effective immediately.

The Comox Valley Regional District is advising residents that water restrictions throughout the region will be lowered on October 1. Working closely with BC Hydro, the CVRD is now in a position to reduce water restrictions to Stage 1 for those connected to the Comox Valley water system. This applies to the residents living in the Town of Comox, the City of Courtenay, and the Arden, Comox Valley, England Road, Marsden/Camco, and Greaves Crescent local service areas. Stage 1 is in effect year round unless conditions warrant an increase to a more stringent phase. In this water system, Stage 1 allows people living at an even-numbered address to use a sprinkler to water a lawn from 4-9 a.m., and 7-10 p.m. on an even-numbered day. People living at an odd-numbered address can water during the same time period on odd-numbered days.

Water restrictions for those living in Royston and tied into the Village of Cumberland water system are lifted completely from October 1st through to April 30th, unless future circumstances determine otherwise.

Stage3 water restrictions for properties connected to the Black Creek-Oyster Bay water system are also lifted; there is now no watering restriction for this system. Water restrictions in this area are put in place when the CVRD considers it necessary (i.e. extreme drought situations).

The CVRD would like to thank the region’s water users for adhering to the water restrictions during an unprecedented dry summer. To keep up-to-date with the local area water restrictions, visit www.comoxvalleyrd.ca/restrictions.
