Don’t forget, Comox Valley, water restrictions begin April 3

The Comox Valley water system will supply water via the Puntledge pump station from April 3 at 8 a.m. until April 24 at 4:30 p.m.

Due to BC Hydro’s spring maintenance on the Puntledge River generating station, the Comox Valley water system will supply water to consumers via the Puntledge pump station from April 3 at 8 a.m. until April 24 at 4:30 p.m.

To maintain enough water in the system during this time for household and firefighting needs, the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) will move to Stage Three water restrictions. Residents are asked to use water only when completely necessary.

During stage three the following seasonal activities are prohibited:

• Watering lawns (with manual or automatic sprinklers) or pressure washing driveways or boulevards at any time;

• Filling or adding water to a hot tub or garden pond at any time;

• Washing a vehicle or a boat at any time.

This Stage Three water restriction applies to everyone living in the Town of Comox, the City of Courtenay and the Arden, Comox Valley, England Road, Marsden/Camco, and Greaves Crescent water local service areas. All of these areas are served by the Comox Valley water system.

Health regulations require that consumer and business users be aware that the water might be turbid (cloudy) if heavy rains occur. There may be slight discolouration of the water during and after this period.

Residents living near the pump station can expect some noise from the engines while water is being pumped from the river. We apologize to residents who may be affected.

For more information on the current restrictions including the three-stage bylaw visit www.comoxvalleyrd.ca/restrictions.
