The Comox Valley Regional District has issued a boil water advisory.

This goes for all users of the Comox Valley Water System.

Intense rain over the past 24 hours has led to high turbidity levels in Comox Lake and the Puntledge River. Users are asked to boil their drinking water for one minute at a rolling boil.

The advisory does not affect residents in the Village of Cumberland, Royston or those connected to the Black Creek-Oyster Bay water supply system. Updates can be found through the Comox Valley Regional District’s website.
