Much of the Comox Valley will be under Stage 1 water restrictions starting tomorrow (May 1st).

They come into effect every year at this time.

Under Stage 1, lawn and garden sprinkling is allowed between 5:00am and 8:00am and 7:00pm and 10:00pm, 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, the Comox Valley Regional District’s manager of water services. 

“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 Comox, Courtenay, and the Comox Valley Water Local Service Area.
