COURTENAY, B.C- It appears as though the water restrictions in the Comox Valley are ending on time.

On April 12th, the Comox Valley Regional District’s water system went into Stage 4 restrictions to allow repairs to be made on a leaky section of the system’s main line near the Puntledge River intake.

Under the restrictions, all use of water for any purpose other than drinking, food preparation and personal hygiene is prohibited from April 12th to April 22nd. The move effects all users of the system, with the majority in Courtenay and Comox.

Cumberland uses its own water and wastewater system.

On April 15th, the district confirmed that the repair work on the line was proceeding as planned.

If everything continues as planned, the restrictions will end by midnight tonight.

Any changes to that timeline will be reported as soon as possible.
