Stage 1 Water Restrictions in Effect May 1

The Comox Valley Water System will be under Stage 1 water restrictions beginning May 1, 2021, which come into effect every year at this time.

Under Stage 1, lawn and garden sprinkling is permitted between the hours of 5 am – 8 am and 7 pm -10 pm, on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday for even numbered addresses and Wednesday, Friday and Sunday for odd numbered addresses.

“With many people tending to their yards at this time of year, we want to ensure we are all following the water restrictions in place,” explained Mike Herschmiller, Manager of Water Services for the CVRD. “These Stage 1 restrictions are not only beneficial from a conservation perspective, but they also help everyone get ready for the shift to Stage 2 when water availability decreases as lake levels begin to drop.”

The Comox Valley Water System includes the Town of Comox, City of Courtenay, and the Comox Valley Water Local Service Area. Residents are encouraged to download the summer watering schedule from www.comoxvalleyrd.ca/restrictions.​

The Royston Water Local Service Area and Black Creek-Oyster Bay Water Local Service Area also move to Stage 1 water restrictions each year on May 1. For more information on these water systems and their watering schedules, visit www.comoxvalleyrd.ca/watersystems.

The Comox Valley Regional District is a federation of three electoral areas and three municipalities providing sustainable services for residents and visitors to the area. The members of the regional district work collaboratively on services for the benefit of the diverse urban and rural areas of the Comox Valley.
