CVRD water restrictions lowered

Back to Stage One

  • Oct. 5, 2016 6:00 a.m.

The Comox Valley Regional District is advising residents that water restrictions throughout the region have been lowered.

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 one is in effect year-round unless conditions warrant an increase to a more stringent phase. In this water system, stage one allows people living at an even-numbered address to use a sprinkler to water a lawn from 4 a.m. to 9 a.m., and from 7 p.m. to 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 Oct. 1 to April 30, unless future circumstances determine otherwise. There are no watering restrictions in place for the Black Creek-Oyster Bay water system.
