COURTENAY, B.C- Due to increased rainfall, all water restrictions are being lifted in the Comox Valley.
According to a news release from the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD), the rain in September replenished the reservoir, allowing the local water system to be in good shape for the coming months.
“Working closely with BC Hydro, the CVRD has removed water restrictions for those connected to the Comox Valley water system,” read the release.
“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.”
For residents of Royston and those tied into the Village of Cumberland water system, restrictions are lifted through from October 1st to April 30th, unless circumstances change.
“There are no watering restriction in place for the Black Creek-Oyster Bay water system,” read the release.
“Water restrictions in this area are put in place when the CVRD considers it necessary (i.e. extreme drought situations).”
The district government thanked users for keeping in line with previous water restrictions.
